“Doomsday” mom Lori Vallow pleaded not guilty to murder charges over the slayings of her two children.

Vallow and her husband, Chad Daybell, used their religious faith and belief in zombies to justify the killings to prosecutors. They have been charged with a string of murders in a complicated case that dates back to 2019.

The pair were initially charged back in May 2021 for the murder of the woman’s two youngest children, seven-year-old Joshua “JJ” Vallow and 16-year-old Tylee Ryan, following their disappearance in September 2019.

Authorities began looking for Vallow’s kids after relatives raised concerns about their well-being and sudden vanishing. The couple never reported the children missing and allegedly wouldn’t cooperate with authorities.

The kids’ bodies were eventually found in June 2020, buried at the edge of Daybell’s backyard in Idaho. Authorities haven’t ever disclosed the children’s causes of death.

The couple is additionally facing charges regarding the deaths of their previous spouses. Daybell has been charged in the death of his first wife, Tammy Daybell, just two weeks before he married Vallow in November 2019. At the same time, Vallow is charged in the death of her former husband, Charles Vallow, who her brother fatally shot in July 2019.
