BOISE, Idaho — The grandparents of Joshua JJ Vallow are asking an Idaho judge to allow them to sit in court and appoint them to represent the murdered 7-year-old, on the eve of the trial for JJ’s mother, Lori Vallow Daybell.

Shanon Gray, attorney for Kay and Larry Woodcock, filed a motion and memorandum Friday arguing why the couple deserves to be defined as victims and why Kay Woodcock is the best person to represent her late grandson.

The Woodcocks had plans to attend Vallow Daybell’s trial every single day after jury selection, as they look for justice in the deaths of JJ, Tylee Ryan, and Tammy Daybell. But Judge Steven Boyce could rule next week that they can’t sit inside the courtroom because they’re being called as witnesses to testify.

Boyce issued an order that witnesses cannot watch others give testimony in the case, with an exception made for victims.

“The defense argued that [the Woodcocks] weren’t under the immediate family definition under a couple of statutes,” Gray said, in an interview with KSL TV Friday. He was referring to a Wednesday hearing where Vallow Daybell’s attorneys said they believed the Woodcocks are not legally defined as victims because they aren’t JJ’s immediate family.

Vallow Daybell adopted JJ with her late husband and Kay’s brother, Charles Vallow. Vallow Daybell has been indicted in Charles’ death in Arizona.
