UPDATE: On Tuesday, June 29, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office announced in a press release that a grand jury indicted Lori Vallow on one charge of Conspiracy to Commit First Degree Murder in connection to the death of her late husband, Charles Vallow.
An indictment alleges Lori and her late brother, Alex Cox, had agreed that “at least one of them or another would engage in conduct constituting the offense of First Degree Murder.”
According to the Attorney’s Office, Alex called emergency services on July 11, 2019, saying he shot his brother-in-law in an act of self-defense.
NBC News reported Alex died of natural causes five months later.
The Attorney’s Office has not yet set a date for Lori’s arraignment.
County Attorney Allister Adel said in a statement, “Complex, difficult cases of this nature take time to properly investigate and solve. I appreciate the tremendous number of hours the dedicated officers of the Chandler Police Department have invested, and my office is equally committed to bringing those responsible for Charles Vallow’s death to justice.”
