"There was no trickery at all from the beginning to the end," said Malach. "I asked her again if she had any problem talking to me and she shook her head side to side and said uh uh."
Malach recorded the interview and authorities say it ended with Lowe confessing to hiding her pregnancy from family members and then smothering both newborn sons.
Defense attorneys say jurors shouldn't be allowed to watch it though.
They claim Malach didn't properly read Lowe her Miranda rights and they called psychiatrist William Kenner to the stand to explain why the confession could have been coerced.
"She was not capable from an emotional standpoint of maintaining her will in the face of a powerful male interrogator," said Kenner.
Prosecutors disagreed and so did Judge Dee Gay who ruled Malach did nothing wrong in getting Lowe to confess.
"She's obviously upset," said defense attorney John Pellegrin. "We felt like we developed the proof great but the judge disagreed."
District Attorney General Ray Whitley says. the confession will now be a big part of the trial next March when Lowe faces two murder charges.
"It's a big part of our case anytime a defendant gives a statement as to what happened it's something the jurors will want to hear and it helps us find the truth," said Whitley.

SPRINGFIELD, Tenn. (AP) -- The Governor's Highway Safety Office plans to announce its "Click It or Ticket" campaign on Friday.
The event is scheduled to take place at 1 p.m. at the Robertson County Courthouse in Springfield.
Nationally, statistics show seat belt use increased significantly in 2012 as compared to 2011 among drivers, right-front passengers and backseat occupants.
However, officials say more than 400 of Tennessee's crash fatalities last year involved unrestrained drivers or passengers.
The Governor's Highway Safety Office urges all motorists to buckle up.
