Trial underway for woman charged with killing her newborn twins

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)--Jury selection is under way in the murder trial of a Hendersonville woman charged with smothering her newborn twin boys.

Lindsey Lowe told police she hid her pregnancy from everyone before giving birth at home in Sept. 2011. The 26-year-old said she covered the boys' mouths after they were born to prevent her parents from hearing their cries.

Police say the babies' father was not Lowe's fiance` but a family friend.

Sumner County District Attorney General Ray Whitley says the affair may be a possible motive for the twins' killing. He says he won't seed the death penalty.

Lowe's attorney John Pellegrin has said he believes that Lowe was mentally ill at the time of the murders.
