PHOENIX, Arizona — Although scheduled to be in an Arizona courtroom Wednesday morning, Lori Vallow Daybell instead chose to waive her presence at the case management hearing.

In her place, Daybell's newly appointed public defender asked for more time to review discovery. A pre-trial conference is scheduled for June 5, where Lori's attorney asked to waive her attendance there as well.
