Exclusive: Jury Foreman Speaks Out On Lowe Trial

HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. - For the first time, the jury foreman in the Lindsey Lowe murder trial opened up about the case.

NewsChannel 5 sat down exclusively with Jennifer Morgan.

Morgan was elected foreman by her peers. She said the evidence is what made the answer clear.

It was in court that a jury convicted Lindsey Lowe of murdering her newborn twins. We heard as each juror confirmed their decision and among them foreman Jennifer Morgan.

"It's just long, it was more difficult than I thought it would be," said Morgan.

A school teacher, wife and mother of two -- seven days in court was no easy task.

"You couldn't share anything with your friends, you didn't have co-workers and I didn't text, and I just let everybody know I'm on like a sequester," said Morgan.

Jurors couldn't discuss the trial as it was going on, and Morgan said at times she felt alone.

"That was difficult not having that community, like you have all these ideas going on in your mind, and it's hard to process them when you can't talk about them," said Morgan.

When it came down to making the final decision, she said Lowe's confession to the detective was the most convincing piece of evidence.

"She never said oh my gosh, I did not mean to do this," said Morgan. "I didn't mean to hurt my child. She had a second one and did the same thing. I couldn't get past the second one."

Though it took just over two hours of deliberation, Morgan said the decision was not easy.

"I feel sorry for her and her family. She will never have the joy of having her children, and her parents won't have their grandkids, and her sister won't have nephews to love and watch grow up," said Morgan.

However, Morgan said it is a decision she can live with for the rest of her life.

"I told them we cannot think about her punishment, we cannot think about if she's not guilty of her doing it again, this is not our concern," said Morgan.

"Our concern is just the 10 minutes of the decisions made, and we all agree she is not a bad person, we are not saying that she was a bad person," Morgan continued. "She's an upstanding citizen and she's done everything right. She did this wrong and we were the voices of those two little babies."

We spoke to several other members of the jury Wednesday-- one who we learned is a mother to twins. She did not want to speak publicly about the trial.
