Prosecution rests in twin baby murder case

GALLATIN, Tenn. (WVLT)--The prosecution has rested its case against the woman accused of smothering her newborn twins.

In court Thursday, the father of the boys told jurors in Gallatin that he had no contact with Lindsey Lowe after they had sex in January 2011 and didn't know she was pregnant.

Jeremy Smith told the court he would have taken care of the twins.

The defense pressed him on that, stating that Smith has been held in contempt for failing to pay child support on another child.

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

The 26-year-old hid her pregnancy from everyone before giving birth in the bathroom of the Hendersonville house she shared with her parents and sister.
