Lori Vallow-Daybell appeals first-degree murder convictions

FREMONT COUNTY, Idaho (KIFI) - Lori Vallow-Daybell is appealing her guilty verdict and three life sentences to the Idaho State Supreme Court. 

In court document filed last Thursday, Vallow-Daybell's lawyer asked the state's high court to look at more than a dozen issues. 

Some issues include her mental state and if Judge Steven W. Boyce was wrong when he ruled she was competent to stand trial. 

Other issues are if Judge Boyce abused his discretion when he sentenced Vallow-Daybell to three consecutive life sentences and sentenced her to pay more than $160,000 in fines and court costs. 

You can read the documents below.

Vallow-Daybell was found guilty back in May by an Ada County jury on charges related to the deaths of her childrenJJ Vallow and Tylee Ryan and her husband Chad Daybell's late wife Tammy Daybell. 

He faces similar charges, and his trial is set to start April 1 of next year in Ada County.
