HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. – A private funeral was held Sunday for the newborn twins who were allegedly suffocated by their mother. The attorney for Lindsey Lowe said that she along with her family and a few close friends were the only ones in attendance.

The service was held at Spring Hill Funeral Home and the twins were buried at Spring Hill Cemetery.

Attorney John Pellegrin told NewsChannel 5 that the twins were given names, Mark Alvin Michael Lowe and Paul Duvoll Tate Lowe.

Lowe was charged with two counts of first degree murder after the infants were discovered.

The infants were born on September 12 at Lowe's parents' Hendersonville home. Her father, Mark Lowe, discovered one of the babies dead in a laundry basket two days later and called police. When they arrived on scene, they discovered the second baby.

In a court affidavit, the 25-year-old mother reportedly told police she held her hand over each baby's mouth until each was dead.

The affidavit said Lowe then hid the bodies in the laundry basket to keep them from being discovered.

She returned back home on September 21 on supervised bond, after her attorney said her grandparents offered their home for collateral to pay the $250,000 bond.

Lowe has reportedly not talked or eaten much since her arrest last week. In fact, she had been on suicide watch while in jail.

Lowe's attorney said they have been considering an insanity plea, but it was too early to make that determination. Prosecutors have mentioned that they may pursue the death penalty.

Lowe had been engaged since 2008, however, paternity testing was done to determine who the father was. Detectives hope to have the results in the next week.

Lowe was scheduled for a preliminary hearing for Wednesday, but it was rescheduled for October 11.
