Father of dead twins testifies in murder case

GALLATIN, Tenn. (AP) -- The father of twin boys found dead in their mother's laundry basket two days after their birth took the stand on Thursday.

Jeremy Smith told jurors in Gallatin that he had no contact with Lindsey Lowe after they had sex in January 2011.

He said he was shocked to hear he was the father of twins who had died.

Lowe is charged with murder after telling police she suffocated the babies after their birth on Sept. 12, 2011.

Defense attorneys have suggested that police planted the idea with Lowe when she was in no condition to be interrogated.

Lowe, who is now 26, hid her pregnancy from everyone before giving birth in the bathroom of the house she shared with her parents and sister.
