NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Hendersonville woman found guilty of murdering her newborn twins has been sentenced to a minimum of 51 years in prison.
Lindsey Lowe was convicted last month of felony murder, premeditated murder and aggravated child abuse. The murder charges carry an automatic life sentence.
At a Friday hearing in Gallatin, Sumner County Criminal Court Judge Dee David Gee sentenced Lowe to the maximum 25 years on the aggravated child abuse charges. However, Gee ordered the sentences to be served concurrently.
Friends and family testified at the hearing that Lowe was a loving friend and daughter who had always been helpful and dependable. Friend Liz Key, who grew up with Lowe, said she would trust the 26-year-old with her life.
Gee said he found Lowe to be untruthful and selfish.
