Lori Vallow was declared not currently competent to stand trial after her "fitness to proceed" was questioned.

Court records show the Court of the Seventh Judicial District found Vallow not competent to proceed after a psychological assessment was completed. The court recommends "restorative treatment," according to the documents.

The prosecutor contests the findings of a psychological evaluation performed on Lori Vallow so a hearing will be scheduled.

Vallow went in front of Judge Faren Eddins on May 26, but a motion was made to continue the hearing at a future time due to "exigent circumstances."
