Lori Vallow is requesting that the jury selected to listen to her case not be death qualified. Her lawyers contend that doing so “distorts the jury function.”

In the filing, Vallow’s lawyers Jim Archibald and John Thomas wrote that she is also considering raising her mental health as an issue and a reason for not receiving the death penalty. She spent a year at a mental health facility for restorative care.
