“Doomsday” mom Lori Vallow was all smiles in court Tuesday as her attorneys asked a judge to send the case back to a grand jury because of the “confusing” indictment.
The lawyers for Vallow, who is accused of killing two of her children and stealing their social security benefits, also told a judge they “just want a fair trial” during the hearing in an Idaho county courtroom.
The 49-year-old mother and her husband Chad Daybell, 52, have pleaded not guilty to murder, conspiracy and grand theft charges in connection with the 2019 deaths of 7-year-old Joshua “JJ” Vallow and 17-year-old Tylee Ryan.
Vallow’s lawyers on Tuesday asked the judge to separate her conspiracy to commit murder and conspiracy to commit theft charges, arguing they could confuse a jury.
“I have issue with the state saying, ‘Hey, we can lump all these things into one conspiracy charge,’ and as long as they find one of these conspiracies, then the conspiracy is met,” attorney John Thomas said during Tuesday’s proceeding, Fox News reported. “It doesn’t make a lot of sense that way.”
