Lori Vallow, convicted for the murder of her two children, has been extradited to Arizona to face new charges for the death of her fourth husband, Charles Vallow. Vallow, 50, was booked on one count of first-degree murder after a grand jury indictment in 2021, linked to Charles Vallow’s fatal shooting by her brother in 2019. Additionally, she faces charges for conspiring with her brother to murder Brandon Boudreaux, her niece’s ex-husband, indicted by a grand jury in 2022.
Booked without bond, Vallow is labeled as “high security” and isolated in jail, awaiting her next court appearance on December 7. Currently serving a life sentence without parole for the 2019 murders of her children, Joshua “J.J.” Vallow and Tylee Ryan, in Idaho, Vallow’s legal team has filed an appeal.
Vallow and her fifth husband, Chad Daybell, followed a doomsday ideology. The children’s remains were found in 2020 on property owned by Daybell in Idaho. Vallow, who denied the murder charges, claimed accidental deaths and side effects from medications. She was also found guilty of plotting to kill her children and Daybell’s first wife, Tamara Daybell.
Chad Daybell faces murder charges in the same cases and has pleaded not guilty, with his trial set for spring 2024. Lori Vallow’s marriage to Charles Vallow reportedly deteriorated after she became influenced by Daybell’s religious fiction writings. The couple, who had separated in 2019, shared a blended family including Tylee and adopted son J.J.
In July 2019, Charles Vallow was shot by Vallow’s brother, Alex Cox, who claimed self-defense but later died of natural causes. Lori Vallow was implicated in Charles’s murder following a complex investigation. She is also accused of conspiring with Cox to kill Boudreaux in 2019. Boudreaux survived an attack on his vehicle, which he attributed to Cox, leading to the indictment of Vallow in this case as well.
