BOISE, Idaho (CBS2) — It’s a bizarre case that many have been seeking answers to since 2019.

That’s when Rexburg Police began looking for two of Lori Vallow Daybell’s children, 17-year-old Tylee Ryan and 7-year-old JJ Vallow.

Lori and her husband, Chad Daybell, were in Hawaii when the search was happening, and she was later arrested there on a warrant out of Rexburg for failure to produce her children.

Chad’s former wife, Tammy Daybell, was found dead in her home in October 2019.

Her death was initially ruled to be from natural causes but police later exhumed her body for an autopsy after learning Chad and Lori got married two weeks after Tammy’s death and her children were missing.

It wasn’t until June 2020 Chad was arrested after Lori’s two children were found buried in the back of his home in Salem.

In May 2021, a grand jury indicted the couple on murder charges.

But Lori was declared incompetent a few weeks later, putting a halt to the case for almost a year.

Lori wasn’t found competent to process with the trial until April 2022.

She was formally arraigned on murder charges and entered a not-guilty plea the following week.

In May 2022, prosecutors announced they would be seeking the death penalty.

Later that month, Judge Steve Boyce ruled that the trials would be held together in Ada County in January.

The trial was later pushed back to April, and the cases were severed just a month before the trial was set to begin.

Lori will go forward with the April 3 trial date, but Chad’s trial has yet to get a new date.

Judge Boyce has since taken the death penalty off the table for Lori.

She was transferred to the Ada County Jail from Madison County just last Wednesday March 22.

Potential jurors are now submitting questionnaires as the jury selection process gets underway.

If convicted, the most she could get is life in prison.
