Lori’s sentencing is scheduled for July 31.
She was convicted on May 15 of murdering her two youngest children, Tylee Ryan and JJ Vallow, and conspiring to kill Tammy Daybell, the first wife or her fifth husband, Chad Daybell.
Vicki Hoban, Tammy’s aunt, was one of four people who initially asked to speak at Lori’s sentencing, but were denied.

On July 19, Judge Steven Boyce reversed his prior ruling after learning that Hoben is the biological sister of Tammy’s mother, Phyllis Douglas, who passed away in June.
The judge approved Hoban’s latest request to join the ranks of the following family members approved in a previous order:
- Colby Ryan, Lori’s oldest child and victims’ brother
- Summer Shiflet, Lori’s sister and Tylee’s representative
- Kay Woodcock, JJ’s grandmother and representative
