Just a week ago in Idaho, the former Arizona mother was found guilty of murder in the deaths of her two children and conspiring to kill the wife of her lover and her husband. FOX 10 Investigator Justin Lum spoke to Tiffany, juror 17, about the experience she won't forget.
Investigators say Vallow and Daybell used their religious beliefs to justify these three killings. They allegedly claimed JJ and Tylee became zombies and that a dark spirit possessed Tammy who died suddenly in October 2019.
The jury started deliberating over the case on Thursday. The prosecution's closing arguments reiterated what was said during the opening statements, claiming money, power and sex motivated the killings.
