Kristina Lowe sits through the opening statement at her jury trail Thursday at Oxford County Superior Court.

PARIS, Maine — The state rested its case against Kristina Lowe on Tuesday morning after presenting three full days of eyewitness testimony that Lowe was drinking for hours before a fatal accident that killed Oxford Hills teens Rebecca Mason and Logan Dam, and that she told her friends how sorry she was that she had been texting and driving at the time of the crash.

Lowe is on trial in Oxford County Superior Court, facing two charges of vehicular manslaughter, two charges of aggravated criminal operating under the influence and one charge of leaving the scene of a fatal accident. All of the charges are felonies and, if convicted on all counts, Lowe faces more than 60 years in jail.
