If another progress report comes in during that time saying Vallow is competent, a hearing will be scheduled sooner. If not, another status hearing will be scheduled to see if Vallow is then competent to stand trial.

Chad Daybell also appeared in court Wednesday. His trial will be postponed as there are several upcoming court dates for motions and the parties are still reviewing the Grand Jury minutes and discovery, according to CourtTV.

The new trial date for Daybell will be set at a scheduling conference that will take place after the October 5 and 6 hearing on the change of venue.
