Lindsey Lowe, 26, was found guilty of murder in the case of the newborn twin deaths in Tennessee that is making headlines this week.
In 2011, Lowe was arrested for smothering her newborn twins to death in a laundry basket.
She stated during the trial that she was "just trying to keep them quiet" in the bathroom of her parents’ home.
The Washington Post states that the 26-year-old, who held a Bible during much of the week-long trial, showed no emotion when she was sentenced. She was calm and stated, "I’m OK. I love you all. He’s with me."
There were seven men and five women on the jury during the emotional trial.
They were shown a video taken on Sept. 12, 2011 in which Lowe describes to police how she gave birth alone in the bathroom inside her parents' home in in Hendersonville, TN.
One dead baby was found in the basket by a family member. When police arrived on the scene, they found the second baby under a bloody sheet in the same laundry basket.
The Associated Press reports that Lindsay Lowe was engaged when she got pregnant but hid the pregnancy from her family and friends. Reportedly she got pregnant with the twins while she was having an affair.
Hendersonville Police Detective Steve Malach testified during the trial that Lowe indicated she did not want anyone to find out that she was pregnant and confessed that she "maybe" smothered the babies when they were born.
The two murder convictions each have a life sentence attached. Lowe will serve a mandatory 52 years in prison. In April, the judge will determine if she will serve additional time for the conviction for aggravated child abuse.
