POCATELLO, Idaho (Scripps News Boise) — Lori Vallow Daybell is now in the custody of the Idaho Department of Correction following Monday’s sentencing hearing where Judge Steven Boyce sentenced the Idaho mom to three consecutive life sentences without the chance of parole.

Vallow Daybell was convicted in May of killing her two children, JJ Vallow and Tylee Ryan, and conspiring to kill her husband’s previous wife, Tammy Daybell.

She still faces conspiracy to commit murder charges in Arizona. She’s accused of planning the ambush murder of her fourth husband, Charles Vallow, with her now-deceased brother, Alex Cox, along with the attempted murder of her niece’s ex-husband, Brandon Boudreaux.

Vallow Daybell will undergo physical and mental health evaluations before being assigned a custody level at the state women’s facility in Pocatello, but will likely be extradited to Maricopa County in the next 90-120 days.

At a weekly press conference last week, Maricopa County Attorney Rachel Mitchell said an attorney has been working on the case for more than two years and planned to move forward regardless of her sentence in Idaho.

“Victims deserve justice and one victim’s justice is not recognizing that another victim suffered,” Mitchell said.
