Crime Stories with Nancy Grace

Mar 23 2023 • 48 mins

Cult mom Lori Vallow has pled not guilty to charges that she killed two of her children, JJ and Tylee.

Now, Vallow says she can prove it. She has an alibi. Lori Vallow says that her 7-year-old and her 16-year-old were killed while they were at her late brother’s apartment.

Vallow's trial is set to get underway on April 3, 2023. The judge separated the trials of Lori Vallow and her husband Charles Daybell, as Daybell did not file for a speedy trial.

Vallow's alibi notice, filed with the court,  says she was in her own Rexburg apartment when Tylee and JJ died at the apartment where her brother, Alex Cox lived.

And in late-breaking news, the death penalty has been taken off the table in Vallow's case.
