This has always been a case of 'had she done or she did not'.

From the time Darlie Lynn Routier has been charged with the murder of her two young sons way back in 1996, people and the jury alike are still unsure about what had actually taken place on that night of the double murder.

All this while, Darlie Routier sits on the Texas Death Row, crying hoarse that she did not under any circumstance murder her children.

In 1997, the court had found Routier guilty of the charges of murdering her two children in cold blood and had sentenced her to death.

However, she is still waiting for the injection of the lethal toxins in her body, as juries beat their head over the 'did or did not' bit.The motive though has never been clear all these years, with the only possible explanation being, that to maintain the lavish lifestyle for herself and her husband, she eliminated her children, when faced with a economic downfall.

The evidence against her has always been damaging for the defense council to fight her case of acquittal.

The crime scene evidence points to a different story than what Routier recounts of the fateful night.

She had said in her statement that an intruder had barged in to her house in the posh Dallas suburb and had attacked Darlie and the kids.

However, the wounds received on the torso of the children were comparatively deeper and fatal than what was found on her body.

She had also said that she had run across the kitchen to summon help, where glass pieces were strewn over the floor but examination had revealed no injuries on her foot.

All this and more led the police to believe she was not completely honest about the whole incident.

The book "Hush Little Babies" is based on the true story of Darlie Routier.Sphere: Related ContentRelated StoriesThe Accused of the Lana Clarkson Murder goes Free - Mar 25, 2009Barbara Mullenix, CSI Actress Murdered - Jun 07, 2009Australian couple starved autistic daughter to death - Jun 23, 2009Carla Bruni reignites Cecilia text message row - Mar 20, 2008Sleepwalker kills his lover in a bizarre trance at NBC Dateline - Mar 16, 2009Fritzl trial resumes in Austria - Mar 17, 2009Police claim to have found Soumya and Jigisha's killers (Lead) - Mar 24, 2009Austrian incest father pleads 'not guilty' to murder (Roundup) - Mar 16, 2009The Heartsong Murder still reverberates - Apr 17, 2009Woman jailed for 10 years for biting son to death - Mar 05, 200982 Categories - World NewsTags - acquittal - circumstance - cold blood - crime scene evidence - dallas suburb - death sentence - different story - double murder - economic downfall - evidence points - fateful night - glass pieces - hush little babies - intruder - juries - lavish lifestyle - routier - texas death row - torso - toxins
