A newly-released audio recording reveals that prosecutors are planning on charging Lori Vallow and Chad Daybell with conspiracy to commit murder.
“I’m going to tell you right now we are going to be filing conspiracy to commit murder charges against both Chad and Lori,” said Madison County Prosecuting Attorney Rob Wood during a conversation with Vallow’s sister, Summer Shiflet. “And we aren’t shy about that.”
Vallow and Daybell are in jail on numerous charges relating to the deaths of Vallow’s children, Tylee Ryan, 16, and Joshua “J.J.” Vallow, 7, after their remains were found on Daybell’s Salem, Idaho property in June.
