ALLEGED “cult mom” Lori Vallow will not face the death penalty in her upcoming trial as a judge sides with the defense.
Judge Steven Boyce’s shocking decision came on Tuesday, less than two weeks before Vallow is set to go on trial on April 3 for allegedly murdering her two kids.
The ruling means Vallow’s trial will be shorter as there will be no sentencing phase, according to the East Idaho News.
Vallow’s defense attorney Jim Archibald argued to dismiss the death penalty due to the media’s influence on the case and “multiple errors by the government.”
“Media saturation, multiple violations by the government, the government’s knowledge of my client’s mental health and the practical standpoint that Idaho has been trying to kill people on death row and hasn’t been able to do it because the Idaho Department of Correction can’t get chemicals to kill people,” Archibald argued.
