HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. – The Hendersonville woman accused of killing her newborn twins will remain on bond after a hearing Friday afternoon.
The hearing was for 25-year-old Lindsay Lowe after she violated her probation last month. A drug test found a form of valium in her system at one of her check-ins with a probation officer. The unprescribed drug was not allowed by the terms of her original bond.
If found that Lowe was not authorized to take the medication, her bond could have been revoked, meaning she would return to jail.
Her father, Mark Lowe, testified that the family gave her two 2mg Valium pills the Sunday of the twins' funeral to help her maintain her composure.
"That was a very hard day to say the least," Mark Lowe said on the stand Friday. "I was not going to be able to find someone to give her a prescription for
Valium at five o'clock on a Sunday, but my daughter needed something to calm
He told the judge they immediately reported the Valium use the following morning.
Lowe's probation officer told the judge he did not believe she was a flight risk.
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.
