Judge to allow Lori Vallow-Daybell verdict to be livestreamed

ADA COUNTY, Idaho (KIFI) - Judge Steven W. Boyce made a surprising ruling Tuesday as the trial of Lori Vallow-Daybell nears completion.

When the jury reaches its verdict, the judge will allow it to be livestreamed in real time. You can watch the stream right here on Local News 8.

Judge Boyce issued the ruling Tuesday allowing the verdict to be broadcast when it is read. This will be the first time the court will allow a broadcast of the trial. No cameras have been allowed inside the Ada County Idaho courtroom.

Boyce's ruling came after multiple requests from media outlets to be able to record the verdict.

Instead of allowing cameras in the courtroom, he said the verdict will be broadcast and shared over the court's YouTube channel.
