As of June 2014, Darlie Routier's execution date has not been set. She is currently incarcerated in Gatesville, Texas.
In 1996, Darlie Routier was charged with murder. On June 6, 1996, two of Routier's young sons were stabbed in their home as their father and brother slept. Routier claimed an intruder killed her 5- and 6-year-old sons, but she was ultimately convicted for the murder of one son. She was sentenced to death by lethal injection.
As of June 2014, the case has been reopened by the Court of Appeals. Routier's defense team requested DNA tests on both the state and federal level due to their claims that the original tests and crime scene evidence were inconsistent.
An execution date has not been set. She is still going through the appellate process. They are awaiting new DNA testing results as well.
