Jury convicts Tennessee mother in newborn twins’ deaths

GALLATIN, Tenn. — A jury found a 26-year-old Tennessee woman guilty of murder Tuesday in the 2011 smothering deaths of her newborn twins.

The jury of seven men and five women convicted Lindsey Lowe of suburban Nashville of felony murder, premeditated murder, and aggravated child abuse. She was immediately sentenced to life in prison by the judge.

At trial, jurors saw a video of Lowe telling police she had given birth alone in the bathroom of her parents’ home on Sept. 12, 2011, and smothered the babies soon after.

The bodies were not found until two days later.
