Cult’ mom Lori Vallow has pleaded not guilty to charges related to the deaths of her children.
Lori, 47, entered her plea for two felony counts of conspiracy to conceal or destroy evidence on Thursday morning in Madison County District Court via a Zoom call from jail, according to the Daily Mail.
District Judge Dane Watkins Jr scheduled her jury trial for April 2021.
This month marked the first anniversary of the disappearance of Lori’s children, Joshua ‘JJ’ Vallow and Tylee Ryan, whose bodies were found buried on her husband Chad Daybell’s property in June.
Investigators believe the children, who were never reported missing by their mother, were murdered within hours when they vanished within two weeks of each other in September 2019.
