Mother of slain newborn twins avoids jail for now

GALLATIN, Tenn. -

The Hendersonville woman charged with killing her newborn twins just moments after they were born will stay out of jail for now.

In a hearing Friday in Gallatin, a Sumner County judge ruled Lindsey Lowe did not intentionally violate the terms of her probation when she took a drug that wasn't prescribed to her.

The 25-year-old is charged with of two counts of first degree murder after she told detectives she suffocated the infants after giving birth to them on the night of September 12 in a bathroom of her parent's Hendersonville home.

She was released on a $250,000 bond just a week after the murders and has been in the custody of her parents since.

Both Lowe's probation officer and her father, Mark, testified Lowe took the drug valium on the day of her infants' funeral, September 21.

Mark Lowe said his daughter did not have a prescription for valium but he needed to give her something to "calm her down."

He said his mother had two pills in which he gave to his daughter because "she could hardly stand up."

He reported the next morning he informed his daughter's probation officer he gave her the drug.

The officer told Mark Lowe and his daughter that taking drugs without a prescription could be grounds to have her bond revoked.

Instead, the judge sternly warned Lindsey to not take drugs that aren't prescribed to her.

In a preliminary hearing last week it was revealed that the infants' father was a man Lowe had an affair with.

Lowe did not tell anyone she was pregnant, including her parents and her fiance.
