The children’s bodies were found buried on the property of Chad Daybell, Lori’s husband and a doomsday author, in June 2019. Chad Daybell was also charged with the children’s murders, but he was acquitted in May.
In her sentencing hearing on Tuesday, Daybell showed no emotion as the judge sentenced her to two consecutive life terms without the possibility of parole for the murders of her children. She was also sentenced to 15 years to life in prison for the conspiracy to commit murder charges.
The judge said that Daybell’s actions were “despicable” and that she had “destroyed” her children’s lives.
“You are a danger to society,” the judge said. “You will never be released from prison.”
Daybell’s lawyers had argued for a lighter sentence, saying that she was mentally ill and that she had been under the influence of Chad Daybell. However, the judge said that there was no evidence that Daybell was mentally ill and that she had made a “calculated decision” to kill her children.
