BREAKING: ‘Cult mom’ Lori Vallow is COMMITTED for psychiatric treatment after being declared mentally unfit to stand trial for murder of her two children

‘Cult mom’ Lori Vallow has been committed to psychiatric treatment after she was declared mentally unfit to stand trial for the murders of her two children. 

The news comes just over a week after it was revealed that competency evaluation was made under seal to determine Lori’s fitness to proceed with the trial after it was called into question by her lawyers.  

An Idaho judge on Tuesday ordered Vallow to be remanded into the custody of the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare ‘for care and treatment at an appropriate facility for a period not exceeding 90 days.’

The judge ordered the state to compile a ‘progress report’ on Vallow’s mental condition that will ‘include an opinion as to whether [she] is fit to proceed’ with her trial.

‘The court finds that the Defendant does lack (the) capacity to make informed decisions about treatment,’ District Judge Steven Boyce writes in the order.

‘The court finds that the defendant is not dangerously mentally ill.’
