Shock­ing Ver­dict: Ida­ho Jury Sen­tences Chad Day­bell to Death

In a dra­mat­ic turn of events, an Ida­ho jury has sen­tenced Chad Day­bell to death for his role in the mur­ders of his first wife, Tam­my Day­bell, and Lori Val­low Day­bel­l’s two chil­dren, Joshua “JJ” Val­low and Tylee Ryan. 

This cap­ti­vat­ing case, shroud­ed in reli­gious extrem­ism, mon­ey, and a twist­ed pur­suit of pow­er, has gripped the nation.

Fol­low­ing delib­er­a­tions that began on Fri­day, the sequestered jury deliv­ered their ver­dict on Sat­ur­day. Pros­e­cu­tors argued the mur­ders were finan­cial­ly moti­vat­ed and exhib­it­ed “excep­tion­al depravity.”

“The defen­dant showed com­plete dis­re­gard for human life,” stat­ed pros­e­cu­tor Rob Wood. “His actions demon­strate a propen­si­ty for future vio­lence, pos­ing a con­tin­u­ing threat.”

Defense attor­ney John Pri­or pre­sent­ed Lori Val­low Day­bell, whom he described as cap­ti­vat­ing and manip­u­la­tive, as a pos­si­ble influ­ence on Day­bel­l’s actions. He implied her role may have been significant.

This ver­dict fol­lows Lori Val­low Day­bel­l’s con­vic­tion last year for the mur­ders of her chil­dren and con­spir­a­cy to kill Tam­my Day­bell, result­ing in a life sen­tence with­out parole.

Heart­bro­ken rel­a­tives shared emo­tion­al tes­ti­monies through­out the tri­al, express­ing their endur­ing pain. Kay Wood­cock, JJ Val­low’s grand­moth­er, stat­ed, “An unfil­l­able void exists in our hearts, a con­stant ache that will nev­er leave.”

Pros­e­cu­tors por­trayed the case as dri­ven by “sex, mon­ey, and pow­er,” alleg­ing Day­bel­l’s desire for these fueled the deaths. Author­i­ties believe the chil­dren were mur­dered in Sep­tem­ber 2019, fol­lowed by Tam­my Day­bel­l’s sus­pi­cious death weeks lat­er in Ida­ho, short­ly before Day­bell mar­ried Lori Val­low Daybell.

The jury’s deci­sion marks a sig­nif­i­cant con­clu­sion to this unset­tling and intri­cate case. Shat­tered fam­i­lies and a com­mu­ni­ty grap­ple with the after­math of these hor­rif­ic crimes.
