** Reports indicate that the DNA Report has been returned, you can view the alleged report here. –> dr-06262015103716 **

Late last month, Texas Assistant Attorney General Tomee Heining filed a status report in the Routier case saying that the DNA testing has not been completed.  He recommended that the U.S. Federal District Court in West Texas continue to maintain its stay until state proceedings have been concluded.  According to reports, once state-level testing is complete, testing ordered by federal courts will begin.  A conference was held on May 2nd, during which the University of North Texas Science Center, said it could not perform the DNA testing in the Routier case because it does not perform quantification analysis, which is requested in the case.

Routier has always maintained her innocence and says that a man entered her Texas home on June 6, 1996 where Routier and two of her children were sleeping downstairs.  They were attacked, including Routier.  Devon, 6, and Damon, 5, were killed.  Prosecutors contend that Routier inflicted the wounds upon herself and killed the two boys.  Routier’s husband and other son were sleeping upstairs and were not injured.

Routier was convicted of killing her 5-year-old son Damon, but was not charged in the murder of Devon.  Routier was sentenced to death and is currently on death row in Texas.

Routier has been awaiting DNA testing on the evidence in her case for 6 years.  In 2008, Routier was granted the right to DNA testing.

Judge Fred Biery granted a request for improved testing on a bloody fingerprint, a bloody sock, and Routier’s nightgown.

  2. So I’m confused. This post has a link to a returned DNA report which are the results of the state’s DNA testing? And now since this post, we’re still waiting for the results from the federal level? The latest article from Dallas News’ crime blog says results haven’t come back yet, but they aren’t more specific.

    20 years later, Routier is still lying and her bullying mother still bullying. The apple didn’t fall from from the tree with those two.

    DNA results were released June 17, 2015. No evidence of an intruder. Only Darlie.

    Very disappointing DNA test results came back in June for Routier. On to the Federal level.
