Judgment Day-obsessed mother Lori Vallow wiped her eye with a tissue during her first court hearing Tuesday on charges she conspired with her new husband to hide or destroy the bodies of her children.
Vallow, 46, wearing a blue face mask and matching sweater, appeared before Fremont County Magistrate Judge Faren Eddins as he read the charges in a virtual hearing conducted on Zoom.
“Yes,” he replied meekly, when the judge asked him if he understood the charges.
During the brief proceedings, Vallow, whose wavy blond hair was partially pulled back, squeezed his hands as he sat at a table next to his attorney Mark Means.
Her eldest son Colby Ryan was also virtually present and seemed emotional, although he did not speak.
Before the hearing began, Means asked the court to refer to her client as “Ms. Daybell “- the name of her husband, the author of the final judgment Chad Daybell, who is also accused in the case.
The shattered remains of two of Vallow’s sons, 17-year-old Tylee Ryan and 7-year-old Joshua “JJ” Vallow, were found buried in Daybell’s backyard in Idaho earlier this month.
Vallow has been detained at the Madison County Jail on $ 1 million bail since March on charges that she abandoned or abandoned the children.
She was hit with two felony conspiracy offenses to commit destruction, alteration, or concealment of evidence on Monday night.
The judge ruled that his bond would remain at $ 1 million.
A preliminary hearing has been set for August 10.
