Daybell's legal complications are far from over. Mitchell divulged, "She is facing two conspiracy cases. One is out of Gilbert for an attempted murder and the other is out of Chandler for an actual murder. So, those would be on top of the convictions she's already received out of Idaho." Daybell's anticipated arrival in Arizona will lead to her detention at a Maricopa County Sheriff's Office jail for what could be a protracted period.
Daybell, aged 50, was sentenced on Monday to life imprisonment without parole for the deaths of her two youngest children and a woman she perceived as a romantic adversary. This complex case was rife with peculiar claims. Daybell suggested that her children were zombies and that she was a divine entity charged with instigating an apocalypse, earning her the "Doomsday Mom" nickname.
In May, Daybell was declared guilty for the killings of her two youngest children, 7-year-old Joshua “JJ” Vallow, and 16-year-old Tylee Ryan, and for conspiring to murder Tammy Daybell, the previous wife of her fifth husband. Chad Daybell, her husband, awaits trial on identical murder charges.
In Arizona, Daybell will face severe charges. In 2021, a Maricopa County grand jury indicted her for conspiring to murder her fourth husband, Charles Vallow. According to police reports, Alex Cox, Daybell's brother, shot and killed Charles Vallow in Chandler on July 11, 2019. Additionally, a second Arizona indictment unsealed in May of this year charged Daybell with conspiring to murder Brandon Boudreaux, her niece's ex-husband. Allegedly, Cox shot at Boudreaux in Gilbert on October 2, 2019, but failed to hit him. Cox, who was never charged, died later that year due to what authorities deemed natural causes.
Even though Daybell is already serving multiple life sentences in Idaho, Maricopa County is pressing forward with their cases against her. Mitchell justified this move by stating that it is a matter of securing justice for Daybell's purported victims in Arizona. "If you're the loved one of the victims here or you're the victim here… you're entitled to justice, as well. And so we're going to make sure that that is done in these cases," Mitchell said.
As Daybell's legal journey proceeds, it's becoming evident that she will continue to be subjected to the full force of the law. Despite the multitude of charges already levied against her, the push for justice for her alleged victims remains relentless. Daybell's return to Arizona is a significant step forward in ensuring all the affected parties receive the justice they are due. The result of these additional trials may further seal her fate, cementing her infamous status in the annals of crime history.
