FREMONT COUNTY, Idaho (KIFI) - Both Lori Vallow-Daybell and Chad Daybell appeared before Judge Steven Boyce Monday.

You can watch it below.

Lori's hearing was quick and to the point. The judge is looking for a progress report on her mental health to determine if her commitment to  psychiatric treatment should be extended.

Judge Boyce said he received additional information regarding Vallow-Daybell's competency issues Monday. He said the letters he received contained some information, but it would not rise to the level of being a progress report per Idaho code.

He said they need to see a progress report before moving forward. A status conference has been set for Sept. 8.

Chad's hearing was closed, and the details have not been released.

Vallow-Daybell and Daybell were indicted in May on murder charges in connection with the deaths of Vallow's two children, Tylee Ryan and JJ Vallow.

Daybell is also charged with the murder of his wife, Tammy, who died a few weeks before Daybell and Vallow married.

The children's disappearance became national news after Daybell and Vallow abruptly left Idaho following questioning by police about the disappearance of Tylee and JJ as well as Tammy Daybell's death.

Vallow's children were last seen on different days in September 2019. Law enforcement officials found their remains on Daybell's rural property in Fremont County nine months later.

Along with the murder charges, Daybell is charged with insurance fraud stemming from life insurance policies that allegedly paid him money after his wife's death.

Vallow is charged with grand theft for allegedly continuing to draw Social Security benefits for her children after their deaths.

Vallow-Daybell has been deemed not competent to continue with court proceedings and has been admitted to a mental health facility for treatment.
