Lindsey Lowe Case Bound Over For Grand Jury

Posted: Updated:

HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. – The case against Hendersonville woman accused of suffocating her newborn twins and hiding them in a laundry basket has been bound over for the grand jury.

Lindsey Lowe, age 25, appeared in court Tuesday afternoon for a preliminary hearing on charges of first degree murder. Her family and some supporters joined her in the courtroom. 

Lowe has been accused of killing both of her newborn twin boys after they were born in a toilet in her parents' home. Her father discovered one of the babies in a laundry basket and called 911.

Hendersonville Police Det. Steve Malach testified that when he first took Lowe to police headquarters for an interview, she talked about her interest in interior design and hope to one day opening a business in that field.

It was when she was being interviewed that they first learned about the second baby.

Lowe admitted to police that she cheated on her fiance Jonathan Brooks in December 2010 and January 2011 with a man named Jeremy Smith. Paternity tests revealed that Smith - not Brooks - was the father of the twins.

Lowe sobbed audibly as Malach described how she had told him of the affair that occurred in December and January.

Police said Lowe told them that she did not tell Brooks or Smith about the pregnancy.

Lowe's attorney, John Pellegrin, said after the hearing that it was the first time she had heard the results of the paternity test.

An additional bond hearing was scheduled after it was revealed that Lowe tested positive for an unprescribed valium at one of her check-ins with a probation officer.

The drug was a violation of the terms of her probation.

Defense attorney John Pellegrin said he was considering an insanity defense. Prosecutors have said they may seek the death penalty.

The last time Lowe was in court for a bond hearing, she was handcuffed, wearing a prison jumpsuit, and under suicide watch.

Lowe has been out of jail on bond for more than a month and staying with her parents at the same home where she allegedly killed her newborn sons.  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.

Before the babies were buried at a private ceremony in September, family members named them Mark Alvin Michael Lowe and Paul Duvoll Tate Lowe. Lindsey was in attendance.

Members of her church also held a public vigil for the twins in September.

The grand jury was scheduled for November 7.
