FREMONT COUNTY, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - Lori Vallow Daybell entered a plea of not guilty to both charges during an arraignment before Judge Dane H. Watkins Jr. in Fremont County District Court Thursday.
You can watch the arraignment below.
Her jury trial has been set for April 2, 2021, at 10 a.m. with a pre-trial conference on March 22, 2021, at 10 a.m.
She is currently being held on $1 million bond on two felony counts of conspiracy to alter or destroy evidence in connection with the deaths of her two children.
Chad Daybell, 52, late last year married Lori. He is charged with concealing evidence by destroying or hiding the bodies of 7-year-old Joshua "JJ" Vallow and 17-year-old Tylee Ryan at his eastern Idaho home. Investigators found their remains during a search in June, months after the kids were last seen in September.
Daybell is scheduled to appear for a pre-trial conference on December 8, with a trial set for January 11.
Prosecuting attorney, Rob Wood recently entered a 'motion to joinder' aimed at consolidating the prosecution of Lori Vallow Daybell and her husband Chad Daybell.
Chad's attorney, John Prior objected that motion Wednesday, stating the motion would prevent Daybell from a fair trial in eastern Idaho.
"Joining the cases, combines the coverage of both Defendant's local media as well as national media and only adds to the level of attention and knowledge perspective jurors would have in the case," Prior said.
