SUMNER COUNTY, Tenn. – The lawyer for the woman accused of killing her two newborn sons entered a not guilty plea on her behalf.
Lindsey Lowe was not present at the arraignment on Friday. Her next hearing is May 17.
Last week, Lindsey Lowe was indicted by a grand jury on six counts including murder and aggravated child abuse. The district attorney also announced that they would not to seek the death penalty against her.
Each count of murder carries the possibility of a life sentence.
Lowe remains free on bond, even after drug tests found Valium in her system. At a bond hearing earlier this month, her father, Mark Lowe, testified that the family gave her two- 2 milligram Valium pills the Sunday of the twins' funeral to help her maintain her composure.
He told the judge they immediately reported the Valium use the following morning. The judge deemed she was not a flight risk.
The 25-year-old has been accused of killing both of her newborn twin boys after they were born in a toilet in her parents' home on September 12. Her father discovered one of the babies in a laundry basket two days later and called 911.
Lowe allegedly admitted to smothering the infants so her parents would not hear them cry.
In a preliminary hearing, a detective testified that the father of the newborn twins was not Lowe's fiancé, but rather a man she had an affair with in December 2010 and January 2011.
Lowe was released 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.
Members of her church also held a public vigil for the twins in September.
