Shortly after Tylee and J.J. Vallow went missing in September of 2019, their mother, Lori Vallow, raised suspicions. Just a few months after the children disappeared, Lori Vallow wed Chad Daybell (whose wife, Tammy Daybell, passed away just two weeks earlier).

In February of 2020, Vallow and Daybell were arrested, and the kids' remains were identified in Daybell's backyard in June of that year. They were each charged with the first-degree murders of Tylee Vallow, and J.J. Vallow in 2021. Daybell was also charged for Tammy Daybell's death.

Where is Lori Vallow today, in 2022?

More than two-and-a-half-years after her initial arrest, Lori Vallow will soon stand trial for the deaths of her younger two children, Tylee and J.J. Vallow.

Though it was initially ruled that Lori Vallow was not fit to stand trial in May of 2021 (and she sought treatment at a mental health facility), Judge Steven W. Boyce determined that she was competent to go on trial in April of 2022.

Lori Vallow will go on trial alongside her husband, Chad Daybell, on January 9, 2023. Until their time in court commences, both Vallow and Daybell remain in separate jails in eastern Idaho.

The spouses are both facing potential death sentences as well.

Lori Vallow's surviving son, Colby Ryan, is appearing on the Netflix series, 'Sins of Our Mother.'

As Vallow awaits trial, the public can learn more about the case, and about her various marriages in the Netflix docuseries, Sins of Our Mother. In addition to Tylee and J.J. Vallow (who was the biological grandnephew of Vallow's late fourth husband, Charles Vallow), Lori had a third child, Colby Ryan.

Lori and her second husband, William Lagioia, welcomed Colby in 1996. Colby is sharing his story for the first time at length on the series, and he will discuss his late siblings, how he learned about their disappearances, and his mom's relationship with Chad Daybell.

Colby himself is dealing with legal matters of his own.

In August of 2022, Colby was arrested in Mesa, Ariz. for two counts of sexual assault against an unnamed woman. The charges were dropped "without prejudice" the following month, which means that he can still be charged again in the future.

Sins of Our Mother will debut on Netflix at 3 a.m. ET on Sept. 14.
