Doomsday Prophet Chad Daybell Sentenced to Death for Triple Murder Conviction in Idaho

Boise, Idaho – Chad Daybell, known as the “Doomsday Prophet,” has been sentenced to death in Idaho after being found guilty on all counts in his triple murder case.

The jury unanimously decided to sentence Daybell to death for the murders of JJ Vallow, Tylee Ryan, and his previous wife, Tammy, after deliberating for a total of eight hours.

The prosecution highlighted the lack of remorse and brutal nature of the murders as factors justifying the death penalty for Daybell. The victims, JJ Vallow and Tylee Ryan, were found dead and buried in Daybell’s backyard in Rexburg, Idaho, in June 2020.

Tammy, Daybell’s first wife, was also a victim in this case, having been suffocated in October 2019. The state argued that Daybell financially benefited from Tammy’s death through her life insurance policies, adding to the aggravating factors supporting the death penalty.

Daybell and his then-girlfriend, Lori Vallow, used their beliefs to justify the killings, labeling the victims as dark spirits and zombies. This manipulation of religious beliefs contributed to the jury’s recommendation for a death sentence for Daybell.

Family members of the victims expressed relief that justice had been served, with the grandfather of JJ Vallow, Larry Woodcock, stating that justice was carried out for all involved. The focus now shifts to Vallow’s upcoming trial for two murder conspiracy charges related to her fourth husband’s death and the attempted murder of her former nephew-in-law.

The case has a complex history, with Vallow’s brother previously convicted of assaulting her third husband in 2008, and suspicions surrounding Vallow’s beliefs in Daybell’s doomsday fiction books leading to further investigations.

The intricate web of events involving Vallow and Daybell has impacted many individuals, with hundreds of people intertwined in the case. For more in-depth information on the key players in this case, a comprehensive breakdown can be found.

Overall, the sentencing of Chad Daybell to death marks a significant milestone in the legal proceedings surrounding these tragic murders. The impact of these events extends beyond the courtroom, resonating with the families and communities affected by this heartbreaking saga.
