A judge sentenced Doomsday Mom Lori Vallow to life in prison without the possibility of parole for the double homicide of her two children and conspiring to commit murder in the death of her husband’s first wife.
According to the New York Post, Vallow gave a bizarre statement to the court before she was sentenced to five terms of life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Vallow said, “Jesus knows me and Jesus understands me. I mourn with all of you who mourn my children and Tammy.”
She continued, “Jesus Christ knows the truth of what happened here. Jesus Christ knows that no one was murdered in this case. Accidental deaths happen. Suicides happen. Fatal side effects from medications happen.”
Vallow said she has had “many” communications with her victims.
“I have had many communications with Jesus Christ the savior of this world…because of these communications, I know for a fact that my children are happy and busy in the spirit world..because of…communications with my friend Tammy Daybell, I know that she is also very happy and extremely busy,” she said according to The Post.

In May 2023, a jury found Vallow guilty after her weeks-long trial in Boise came to a close, as Front Page Detectives previously reported.
Vallow, who did not take the stand in her own defense, was accused of killing two of her children, 16-year-old Tylee Ryan and 7-year-old Joshua “JJ” Vallow, who were last seen in September 2019, as Front Page Detectives previously reported.
In November 2019, Lori married her current husband, Chad Daybell, just two weeks after the death of his first wife, Tammy.

Prosecutors argued during the trial that the couple used “doomsday” involving zombies to justify murdering the children and Tammy, officials said.
The defense did not call any witnesses during the trial and argued that Vallow has the freedom to choose and practice her religion and that there wasn’t enough evidence to connect Vallow to the alleged crimes, according to CBS News.
