In connection with their children’s deaths, Vallow and her husband Chad Daybell were charged with conspiracy to commit murder and first-degree murder. According to local news outlets, prosecutors said that Vallow murdered her children for “remuneration” and had “an absolute contempt for human life.” They said that her conduct was “particularly wicked, awful, cruel, or showing remarkable depravity.”
The prosecution also alleged that Vallow had “a proclivity to commit murder” and would continue to be a menace to society. They even sought that her trial is moved from October 2022 to January 2023 to coincide with Daybell’s trial owing to parallels in the facts and circumstances of both cases.

Lori Vallow Daybell was born Lori Norene Cox in San Bernardino, California to Barry Lynn and Janice Lee Cox. She grew up alongside her brothers Alexander and Adam, as well as her sisters Stacey and Summer. Vallow allegedly married five times between 1992 and 2019. She married her high school lover Nelson Yanes in 1992, only to divorce him soon after.
She later married William Lagioia in Travis County, Texas, in 1995. The couple had their son Colby Lagioia in 1996 but split in 1998. Vallow married Joseph Anthony Ryan Jr. in 2001, and the pair had their daughter Tylee Ryan the following year. Her third husband also officially adopted her son Colby, whom she shares with ex-husband William. Joseph filed for divorce from Vallow in 2004, and the divorce was completed in 2005. Nearly two years later, Vallow’s brother Alex tasered Joseph and threatened to murder him. He eventually pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 90 days in a Texas jail. Meanwhile, Joseph apparently died after myocardial infarction in 2018.
Lori Vallow married her fourth husband, Leland Anthony “Charles” Vallow, in 2006. In 2014, the pair adopted the latter’s nephew Todd Trahan and his girlfriend Mandy Leger’s son Canaan Todd Trahan.

In 2017, the family of four relocated to Arizona.
Meanwhile, Vallow allegedly began reading Doomsday author Chad Daybell’s book The Celestial City (Standing in Holy Places) in 2015 and subsequently joined him in an episode of the Preparing a People podcast titled Time to Warrior Up.
Vallow reportedly deposited $10,000 from Charles’ company account into an unknown account in January 2019. She also added 2,000 Enterprise points to her personal account while he was away on business.
She then moved an extra $25,000 from his company account to an unknown account. Vallow soon informed Charles that she no longer cared about him or J.J.
