The so-called "cult mom" Lori Vallow is set to stand trial for the October 2019 murders of her two children and her husband's ex-wife on April 3. Before the trial begins, Vallow's defense is trying to cite adoption laws to say that JJ Vallow's biological grandmother, is legally considered his aunt. During a hearing, Lori’s lawyer Jim Archibald says an aunt should not qualify as a statutory victim. Biologically Kay is JJ’s grandma. Legally, the defense says she’s not. Full hearing link below. FOX 10 Phoenix investigative reporter Justin Lum speaks with LiveNOW's Lexie Petrovic about the tactics used by Vallow's attorneys and other details surrounding the case.
