LORI VALLOW: Judge Refuse to Reduce $5 Million Bail

LORI VALLOW: Judge Refuse to Reduce $5 Million Bail

It looks as if Lori Vallow will remain behind bars. On Wednesday, a judge in Hawaii declined to reduce the $5 million bail set for the Idaho mother, whose two children have been suspiciously missing since September.

The 46-year-old Vallow was arrested last week and charged with two counts of desertion and non-support of dependent children after she failed to comply with a court order to produce her children to authorities by January 30th.

The children – 17-year-old Tylee Ryan and seven-year-old Joshua Vallow – haven’t been seen since September. Police in Rexburg, Idaho say that Vallow and her new husband, Chad Daybell, haven’t been cooperating with their search. (NBC News)

Hot Takes:

  • Vallow and Daybell traveled to Hawaii in early December, after police in Idaho began searching for the children.
  • Vallow’s ex-husband and Daybell’s previous wife both died fairly recently under suspicious circumstances.
  • Some say that Vallow and Daybell are members of a doomsday cult.
