REXBURG, Idaho – District Judge Steven Boyce on Thursday decided that the jury trials of Chad Daybell and Lori Vallow should be combined.

Special prosecutor Rob Wood asked Boyce to combine the trials, arguing that it would be a burden on the state by “requiring repetitive work.” He also said it would benefit the victims’ families – who live across multiple states – as they won’t have to attend two separate trials.

Lori Vallow’s attorney, Mark Means, did not object to combining the trials.

Chad Daybell’s attorney, John Prior, however, argued before a judge Thursday that his client’s and Lori Vallow’s jury trials should be separate.

Boyce decided that Vallow and Daybell can be tried as co-defendants.
