CULT Mom Lori Vallow has been deemed "unfit to stand trial" just days after she and her husband Chad Daybell were charged with the murder of her two kids.
Vallow has been deemed unfit to stand trial following a psychological evaluation, Seventh Judicial District Judge Steven Boyce wrote in a Thursday order pausing the case.
The 47-year-old underwent a competency evaluation on March 8 after her "fitness to proceed" was drawn into question by her attorney.
"The completely assessment determined that at this time the Defendant is not competent to proceed, and recommends restorative treatment," the documents read.
The prosecution is contesting the results of the report, which were filed under seal.
In the meantime, the judge's order will remain in effect "pending determination of the issue of competency.”
It comes just two days after Vallow and Daybell, a former pastor, were indicted by a grand jury on first-degree murder charges in the deaths of her children JJ, 7, and Tylee, 17.
The pair were also hit with a slew of other charges, including conspiracy to commit first-degree murder and grand theft in connection to the kids' deaths.
Chad Daybell has also been charged with the death of his ex-wife, Tammy Daybell. Both face charges of conspiracy to commit murder in Tammy's death.
The couple both appeared in court on Thursday to be officially indicted on several new charges relating to the murder of Vallow's two kids and Daybell's ex.
Hours earlier, the Chandler Police Department announced that it has also submitted a new conspiracy to commit first-degree murder charge against Vallow regarding the death of Charles Vallow.
Charles Vallow is Lori's ex-husband who was shot and killed by her brother in 2019. Vallow's brother, Alex, claimed he shot Charles in self-defense.
Chandler PD recommended that Vallow should be charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree murder.
The charge has been filed with the Maricopa County Attorney's Office in Arizona, which will determine whether to proceed.
