GALLATIN, Tenn. -

The attorney for the Hendersonville woman accused of killing her newborn twin sons entered a not guilty plea on her behalf Friday morning in criminal court in Sumner County.

A grand jury indicted Lowe earlier this month on two felony counts of first degree murder, two counts of premeditated murder and two counts of aggravated child abuse.

Attorney John Pellegrin entered not guilty pleas on all six counts.

Police said Lowe, 25, suffocated her newborn twins shortly after giving birth to them in September in a bathroom of her parents' Hendersonville home.

In announcing the indictment last week, the district attorney's office also announced it will not seek the death penalty against Lowe.

Each of the first degree murder counts against Lowe carries the potential of a life sentence.  Each aggravated child abuse charge carries a sentence of 15 to 25 years.

Lowe was arrested on September 14 and released on a $250,000 bond a week later into the custody of her parents.

In a preliminary hearing in late October, it was revealed that the infants' father was a man Lowe had an affair with.

Lowe, who was engaged at the time, did not tell anyone she was pregnant, including her parents and her fiance.
