Lori Vallow and her husband, Chad Daybell, have been in custody since the remains of Vallow's children, Tylee Ryan and Joshua "JJ" Vallow, were discovered on Daybell's Idaho property. Subsequently, they each had pre-trial hearings scheduled. On Tuesday, Vallow, who now faces new felony charges in relation to the alleged crimes, appeared via Zoom to acknowledge the development.

During the court appearance, Vallow appeared with her attorney and was asked by Madison County Judge Faren Eddins if she understood the charges she is now facing and the maximum penalty associated with each. To that, she replied, "Yes." Judge Eddins then asked if she's aware that various penalties she is facing could run consecutively or concurrently, which she again indicated that she understood.

The judge then stated that based on the charges she was entitled to a preliminary hearing or a probable cause hearing. Both the prosecution and the defense are in agreement that it should not take longer than two days. The preliminary hearing was then scheduled for 9 a.m. on Aug. 10 and 11 if necessary. Vallow's bond was also set at $1M, but that issue was not addressed during Tuesday's hearing. Colby and Kelsee Ryan, Vallow's son and daughter in-law, were also present while Vallow acknowledged what was ahead regarding her case.

The full appearance can be seen below.

Prior to Vallow appearing in court, prosecutors released the probable cause affidavit, which revealed a bit more about the circumstances that led up to Tylee and JJ's deaths. The document, which was shared by Crime Online, stated that Vallow had once claimed JJ had said that he "loved Satan" and cited his large vocabulary as proof that he "was now a zombie."

Additionally, as outlined in the affidavit, she allegedly also told Melanie Gibb, a friend of both her and Daybell, that she had told JJ's grandmother, Kay Woodcock, that she had cancer as a way to convince her to take him.

As for Daybell, several who knew him prior to being taken into police custody have spoken out about the "strange" behavior that they say he once exhibited. Not only did some state that he had been convinced that he would not face consequences for Tylee and JJ's disappearance, but Gibb herself also stated that she believed the "prolific Doomsday author, alleged cult leader and former grave digger" had "opened the doors of darkness."

After previously facing two felony counts of destruction, alteration or concealment of evidence, he was then charged with two felony counts of conspiracy to commit destruction, alteration or concealment of evidence as well, according to EastIdahoNews.com. He then appeared before Judge Eddins Wednesday afternoon at Wednesday at 1 p.m. MDT (3 p.m. EDT) and his preliminary regarding the previous charges is set for Aug. 3 and 4, reports Crime Online.
