SALT LAKE CITY — The case against Lori Vallow Daybell, who is accused of murder and conspiracy in the deaths of her two children, will be able to move forward. A judge ruled yesterday that Daybell is competent to stand trial.
The case had been on hold since early October but the details around that delay are under court seal.
It’s the second time the case has been delayed for a competency review.

She and her husband, Chad Daybell, have pleaded not guilty.
