Mom accused of attempted suicide on self, daughter

TAMPA, FL (WFLX) - A Tampa mother is accused of trying to kill her daughter and then herself. Nancy Lowe and her daughter were found alive in a burning mini-van.

A man who rescued the two says Lowe looked like she'd been beaten. "The mom had burns on her, and said she wanted to die and all this other stuff. Her eyes were all puffed and black. It looked like she had been beat."

Nancy Lowe's husband, 44-year-old James Clark, appeared in court Monday. His attorney says his client didn't beat his wife. The judge ordered Clark be held without bond until Nancy and their daughter can testify.
