“Doomsday” mother Lori Vallow is scheduled to be charged with the murder of her two children in an Idaho court on Tuesday.
The 48-year-old will appear in Fremont County Court at 3 p.m. local time after a judge ruled last week that she was now mentally fit to stand trial in the 2019 murders of her two children – Tylee Ryan, ages 17 and 7 – to stand trial -old Joshua “JJ” Vallow.
The mother, who has spent the past 11 months in an Idaho psychiatric facility, faces numerous charges related to the complex case, which includes allegations of bizarre beliefs in doomsday predictions and zombies.
Vallow and her husband Chad Daybell, 52, are both charged with conspiracy to commit murder and first-degree murder in connection with the deaths of the two children, who were buried in a makeshift pet cemetery.
The couple, who are both members of the doomsday cult Preparing a People, reportedly began promoting apocalyptic beliefs way back in 2018, while they were still married to other people.
Authorities began investigating when Daybell’s first wife, Tammy Daybell, died under mysterious circumstances in October 2019 — just days before he and Vallow were married.
The following month, police began searching for Vallow’s children after relatives raised concerns about their well-being. The couple have never reported the children missing and reportedly failed to cooperate with authorities.
Vallow and Daybell then fled the rural Idaho town where they had lived and were found months later in Hawaii without the children, authorities said.
The charred and decomposing bodies of JJ and Tylee were found buried on the edge of Daybell’s Idaho backyard in 2020. Authorities have never disclosed the causes of the children’s deaths.
Vallow allegedly told a friend that her children were infected by evil spirits. The couple also reportedly believed that humans could turn into “zombies” if possessed by evil spirits.
The couple, who have already pleaded not guilty to the charges, are scheduled to stand trial together early next year.
Vallow faces separate charges in Arizona for murdering one of her former husbands, Charles Vallow, who was fatally shot by her brother in July 2019.
