A jury has reached a verdict in the case of Lori Vallow Daybell, an Idaho mother accused of killing her two children, Tylee Ryan, 16, and Joshua “JJ” Vallow, 7.
Although Judge Steven Boyce banned cameras from the courtroom at the Ada County Courthouse in Boise, Idaho, and there was no video or audio of the trial during the testimony, he ruled earlier this week that the sentencing would live streaming.
The verdict will be read at 12:45 PM MT, or 2:45 PM ET.
Vallow Daybell was also charged with conspiracy to commit murder in the deaths of the children and the death of her husband’s first wife, Tammy Daybell. She was also accused of stealing Social Security benefits for the children.
Her husband, Chad Daybell, was also charged in the case, but faces a separate trial at a later date.
Both pleaded not guilty to all charges.
Prosecutors called dozens of witnesses to build their case against Wallow Daybell, who they accused of being motivated by money, power and sex in a case involving the defendant’s increasingly fringe religious beliefs. Other deaths in their midst have also raised suspicion, including the self-defense killing of Wallow’s husband, Daybell Charles Wallow, by her brother Alex Cox, and Cox’s later unexpected death.
The defense did not call any witnesses, and Vallow Daybell did not testify.
Wallow Daybell is also charged with conspiracy to commit murder in the death of her husband in a separate case in Arizona.
