She will be sentenced next month to multiple life sentences.
Lori Vallow's trial drew international media attention and we expect that the international, national, and regional media will be returning to cover the final chapter of this tragic Idaho case.

Mr. Daybell's trial will be in Ada County due to the larger available jury pool, the larger population, and the abilities of the Ada County Sheriff and Prosecutor's Offices. The suspect will face the death penalty if convicted. Some folks say that if he is convicted of the death penalty he could face the firing squad. Idaho's legislature just passed a law allowing the firing squad to be used as a means of capital punishment.
