A minor math problem, Chad forgot to carry the two.

His jury trial is scheduled for 11-29 January 2021, with a pre-trial conference scheduled for 10 December. He is currently to be tried in Fremont County; his attorney, John Prior, has 60 days to request a change of venue.

Lori Daybell's arraignment is currently scheduled for 10 September.
Just a few days away, is this still on the schedule?

Lori is still scheduled to be arraigned on 10 September, however a few things have happened in the meantime, but no dates had been given as to when they would be resolved.

First, John Prior, Chad's attorney, filed a motion for the case to be dropped on 27 August.

Then Special Prosecutor Rob Wood filed a motion on 1 September to combine the cases of Chad and Lori, since they were accused of committing directly related crimes.

Finally, Prior filed a motion on 4 September for a change of venue in the trial for Chad. East Idaho News indicated that multiple people had reported some polling going on in the area regarding the case.

Brief update:

Lori pled not guilty at her hearing on 10 September.

On behalf of Chad, Prior objected to the combining of the cases, however Lori's attorney, Mark Means, has stated he has no objection.

Means has also filed a motion for a change of venue for Lori on 17 September. [East Idaho News]

A hearing for Chad regarding dismissal of charges and combining of cases is scheduled for 29 October.

Currently, pending results of the above hearing, Chad's trial is scheduled for 11 January to 29 January. He is expected to appear at a pre-trial conference on 10 December.

Lori's trial is scheduled for 22 March to 2 April. She is expected to appear at a pre-trial conference on 25 February.

Did these cultheads plan this out so well they're not going to get charged with murder?

It's unlikely to be any design of theirs if they aren't.

The evidence surrounding the kids' deaths is probably too circumstantial, especially since one of the conspirators (Alex) is dead and is the only one known (to the best of my knowledge) to have been violent in the past. By making them run the gauntlet on the evidence charges, Chad and Lori will likely be forced to create narratives to account for how the bodies got in Chad's yard, all the while working backwards towards the kids' deaths. I don't think they necessarily would have to account for the deaths, but they may not be able to help themselves. That said, there's likely no chance they won't be asked why they felt the need to bury the kids in the backyard...

To be fair though we don't know the entirety of the evidence against them. There are also still pending cases against each of them for the death of their former spouses. We don't know if any additional charges are forthcoming or not.

You are right. But we have a ton of probable cause and two child corpses.

Seems to me that further investigation and evidence gathering might vaguely be justified, no?

Certainly. This case is so convoluted, involving quite a few characters, I would believe they are no where near finishing up the investigation.

If you look into it, nearly the whole Lori side of the family stinks to high heaven. Some of them know more than they're admitting and I'm sure the authorities are trying to crack one of them. Multiple murders, crazy cultism weaved into crazy mormon doctrine, mixed with what seems to be a whole bunch of narcissists. This case is gonna be one hell of a Netflix original.

I believe you are correct. Having followed this from the outset, I would struggle to relate any sort of coherent narrative to the whole sorry tale.

The only certainty is that two kids are dead under very odd circumstances and several adults are also dead under questionable circumstances. Unpicking that mess would be challenging.

Alas, it seems that no certainty will appear until April, and perhaps not even then, depending on what happens in court.

One thing that puzzles me is that Lori was expecting to be raptured in July. At some point, surely it must occur to her that this failed to happen. Is she doing a Harold Camping job on it? Is she filled with horror and remorse? What?

I just don't know.

Interestingly, I actually discussed the case with my own two kids (not dissimilar in ages) and they were scratching their heads to try and make any sense of it. Plenty of speculation, of course, but a notable absence of any rational narrative to account for any of it.

They did add something that I had not considered. They asked me "Do you really think that we would have gone to our deaths without question? Do you think WE would have fallen for this BS?"

I had to answer "Of course not."

And they said "Then there must have been some coercion/compulsion/violence involved."

Now, I found that a rather compelling view. My kids are rather unexpected sometimes.

A wise move. While there are still a few mysteries left in this story, the primary question has been answered, we know where the children are now.

I AGREE

Interesting audio where Lori Vallow talks about possibly murdering Charles Vallow. Starts about 4 minutes in. Also, lots of crazy Mormon crunchiness too.

Trials have been merged.

Quote:
ST. ANTHONY — The jury trials for Chad and Lori Daybell will be combined following a ruling by District Judge Steven Boyce Thursday morning.

During the hearing, Chad Daybell, alongside his attorney, John Prior, appeared over Zoom alongside the judge and Special Prosecutor Rob Wood.

Lori Vallow in court.

https://people.com/crime/prosecutors...id=48682034642

The murderers will be facing more charges.

Just some evidence discussed, like the little boy's red pajamas and signs that he had been bound. Bound by monsters, while wearing his red jammies. It breaks this mothers heart.

On Valentines Day, in honor of Lori and Chad's tragic love story, I thought I'd point out, there is now a detailed Wikipedia page on the murder of the children.
