REXBURG, Idaho — Lori Vallow-Daybell is expected in a Kauai, Hawaii courtroom Wednesday for an identification hearing, but she'll be back in Idaho for an appearance before a Rexburg judge by the end of the week, FOX 13 has learned.

A deputy court clerk for Madison County, Idaho confirmed Vallow is due for her initiial Idaho court appearance at 2 p.m. Friday.

Vallow-Daybell will have her charges read to her during Friday's court appearance, the court clerk said.

According to a report by East Idaho News, Vallow will be flown back to Idaho on a commercial flight "with multiple law enforcement officers."

Vallow-Daybell was arrested on the Hawaiian island of Kauai last month after failing to bring 7-year-old JJ and 17-year-old Tylee Ryan to Idaho authorities. Police strongly believe the two children's lives are in "extreme danger."

Vallow-Daybell was arrested on February 20 on suspicion of desertion and nonsupport of dependent children. She also faces charges of resisting or obstructing officers, criminal solicitation to commit a crime, and contempt of court - willful disobedience of court process or order.

An Idaho judge gave Vallow-Daybell until 4 p.m. on January 31 to physically bring J.J., who was last seen in September, and Tylee, who was last seen in August, before Idaho authorities.

Vallow-Daybell missed the deadline and did not return to Idaho from Hawaii, where she and Chad had been living.
