NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals has upheld the first-degree murder convictions of a Hendersonville woman who is serving at least 51 years in prison for the 2011 smothering deaths of her infant twins.

The Tennessean (https://tnne.ws/29IXhYf) reports the court on Tuesday rejected an appeal for 29-year-old Lindsey Lowe to be given a new trial.

Lowe’s attorney David Raybin argued before the three-judge panel in August 2015 that Lowe’s videotaped confession to investigators before her arrest should never have been used as evidence because he says Lowe was not read her rights and was denied an attorney during questioning.

Prosecutors said the officers twice read Lowe her rights and that she was free to leave the police station at any time.

Raybin says his team planned to appeal the decision.
