SALT LAKE CITY — Attornies for Lori Vallow Daybell are fighting to ban cameras from the courtroom in her upcoming murder trial.
A hearing in Idaho addressed the matter Thursday.
Prosecutors supported the motion to ban news cameras.
Vallow’s lawyers argued that allowing cameras will force her to “prove her innocence instead of the state having to prove her guilty.”
Lori and Chad Daybell will be tried together for murders, in January
The judge did not make a decision Thursday but said a written decision will be released soon.
Her trial is set for Jan. 9, 2023.
A judge granted Idaho prosecutors’ request to join the trials together as co-conspirators in the killings of JJ Vallow, Tylee Ryan and Tammy Daybell. JJ and Tylee were Lori Daybell’s children and Tammy Daybell was Chad Daybell’s wife.
Lori Daybell and Chad Daybell have pleaded not guilty to all charges.
