By trial witness accounts, Lori Vallow Daybell was a good mom for most of her life. The Idaho resident, now 50, once worked as a hairstylist in Arizona, before moving to Rexburg, and was a devoted member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. But in 2018, around the time she met her latest husband, Chad Daybell, family members and friends said her traditional beliefs started growing toward extremism. Five years later, Vallow Daybell was convicted of the first-degree murders of two of her children, 7-year-old JJ Vallow and 16-year-old Tylee Ryan. She’s now serving three life sentences. Chad Daybell, who authored several books about the end of times, believed that he received personal revelations from God that told him certain people — including the children and his first wife, Tammy Daybell — were possessed by dark spirits and would need to be cast out, according to witness testimony during Vallow Daybell’s trial. Madison County Prosecuting Attorney Rob Wood said the Daybells used their beliefs to commit murder.
