THE MONSTER mom who cheated on her fiance, got pregnant and then ruthlessly smothered her twin sons to death to cover up her affair will not face the death penalty, prosecutor's revealed this week.
As we reported here Lindsey Lowe, 25, held her hands over her defenseless tots mouths and suffocated them to death, just moments after she gave birth to them in the toilet.
Then with both children dead, police said, she took them out of the toilet, covered them with blankets and hid them in a laundry basket in her parent's Hendersonville, TN home.
Her father discovered one of the infants Wednesday and called police, who tracked her down at work.
During police questioning she admitted that she had cheated on her loving fiance Jonathan Brooks, with a man called Jeremy Smith, which we reported here.
She told the investigator that that she hadn't admitted her infidelity or told her fiance about her cheating because she hadn't wanted to "disappoint him and because she didn't want to add to the stress of a family member's illness.
Although prosecutors had previously maintained the death penalty would be on the table Sumner County District Attorney General Ray Whitley has now ruled it out.
After a grand jury's indictment on first-degree murder and aggravated child abuse charges, he said it's not appropriate in this case.
Instead she could face consecutive life sentences on the murder charges. 
Lowe's attorney meanwhile has said he feels Lowe's actions are a "mental health issue."She remains free on $250,000 bond, he reportedly said.
