Trial Date Set For Woman Accused Of Killing Twins

Posted: Updated:

HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. – The trial date of the Hendersonville woman accused of killing her newborn twins has been set for March 11, 2013.

Lindsey Lowe was in Sumner County court on Thursday morning.

If necessary, the judge said the trial will continue into the week of March 18, 2013.

The judge said lawyers must have all reports finished by July 15. The deadline for discovery will be September 13.

Lindsey Lowe is charged with two counts of murder. 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, 2011. 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 fiance, but rather a man she had an affair with in December 2010 and January 2011.

Lowe has pleaded not guilty in the murders. The district attorney announced in November that they would not seek the death penalty.

Each count of murder carries the possibility of a life sentence.

Lowe has been free on bond since shortly after her arrest.
