In a grim courtroom scene, Lori Vallow Daybell, 50, was sentenced to multiple fixed life terms in prison with no possibility of parole on Monday for the shocking murders of her two children, Tylee Ryan and Joshua Jaxon “JJ” Vallow. The sentencing also included charges for conspiring to murder her romantic rival, Tammy Daybell, the former wife of Chad Daybell, with whom Vallow Daybell was planning a new life.

Judge Steven Boyce delivered the sentence, ordering that the prison terms be served consecutively, emphasizing the importance of holding Vallow Daybell accountable for each death. He expressed his disbelief at the defendant’s choices, condemning her for choosing the “most evil and destructive path possible” while having other options at her disposal.

During the trial, prosecutors revealed that Vallow Daybell’s motivation for the heinous acts stemmed from her bizarre religious beliefs about “dark energy” and the “end times.” Her desire to pursue a life with Chad Daybell led her to conspire in the murder of his then-wife, Tammy Daybell. The prosecution painted a harrowing picture of the murder victims’ fate, as Tylee and JJ were found “burned, mutilated, and dismembered, and buried like animals.”

Vallow Daybell took the stand for the first time during the trial, speaking for about 8 1/2 minutes to deny her guilt and claim that her victims visit her in spiritual form and are happy in the afterlife. She recounted a near-death experience during the birth of Tylee in 2002, which she claimed gave her access to heaven and the spirit world. In a baffling statement, she asserted that she had received communications from her deceased children and other relatives, assuring the court that they were content in the spirit world.

Despite the chilling nature of the trial and the heart-wrenching impact statements from the victims’ relatives, Vallow Daybell showed no signs of remorse, according to the judge. The courtroom was filled with emotions, with jurors displaying visible “disgust” during the proceedings.

Bonneville County Public Defender John Thomas, one of Vallow Daybell’s attorneys, requested a 20-year fixed term with an “indeterminate” life sentence, hoping for concurrent sentences. On the other hand, Prosecutor Rob Wood advocated for the maximum penalty, arguing that Vallow Daybell’s betrayal of her children’s trust warranted multiple fixed life terms without the possibility of parole.

The judge sided with the prosecution and handed down the harshest sentence possible, aiming to bring justice to the innocent victims and their grieving families. As Vallow Daybell begins her life sentences, the memory of the horrific acts she committed will continue to haunt those who were involved in the case and the wider community. The tragedy serves as a stark reminder of the importance of safeguarding the lives of innocent children and seeking justice for those who have suffered such unspeakable horrors.
