Idaho mom’s murder trial delayed for second time

The trial for Lori Vallow Daybell, the Idaho woman accused of killing her two youngest children and her fifth’s husband ex-wife, has been postponed for the second time, pending the results of a competency evaluation.

Seventh District Judge Steven Boyce’s ruling Thursday followed a request days ago by Vallow Daybell’s attorneys to pause the proceedings and about five months after Idaho prosecutors announced they would seek the death penalty in a bizarre case that has drawn worldwide attention.

The trial, scheduled for January, was suspended to determine Vallow Daybell’s “competency to stand trial,” Boyce wrote in his court order. The documents detailing the defense request were sealed and a short hearing on the matter was closed to the public.

Vallow Daybell and her husband, Chad Daybell, have pleaded not guilty to a slew of charges including murder, conspiracy and grand theft in the deaths of Joshua “JJ” Vallow, 7, and Tylee Ryan, 16, and Daybell’s previous wife, Tammy Daybell, who unexpectedly died two weeks before he married Vallow Daybell.
