GALLATIN, Tennessee — A Hendersonville woman convicted of smothering her newborn twins is again trying to be granted a new trial.

WTVF-TV (http://bit.ly/1L1ZIAo ) reports that Lindsey Lowe's new lawyer David Raybin says a crucial interview Lowe gave a detective before her arrest should never have been allowed to be used as evidence because he says Lowe was not read her rights and was denied an attorney during questioning.

In January 2014, a judge denied a retrial for Lowe, who was sentenced to at least 51 years in prison after she was convicted of felony murder and other charges stemming from the deaths of Lowe's twins in 2011.

The state filed a response to Raybin's appeal, saying Lowe received a fair trial.

The appellate court has been scheduled to hear Lowe's appeal in August.
