Trial to begin for Tennessee woman charged with killing newborn twins

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Jury selection is under way in Gallatin for the murder trial of a Hendersonville woman charged with smothering her newborn twin boys.

Lindsey Lowe has told police she hid her pregnancy from everyone before giving birth at home in Sept. 2011. The 26-year-old said she covered the boys’ mouths after they were born to prevent her parents from hearing their cries.

Police say the babies’ father was not Lowe’s fiance but a family friend.

Sumner County District Attorney General Ray Whitley has cited the affair as a possible motive for the twins’ killing.

Lowe’s attorney John Pellegrin has said he believes that Lowe was mentally ill when she killed the children.

Whitley has said he will not seek the death penalty.
