Texas woman who was sentenced to the death penalty via lethal injection for the murder of her five-year-old son, Damon Routier. Her other son, Devon, was also killed the same day, though she was never convicted of his murder.
She initially claimed that she was the victim of a home invasion and that her sons were stabbed by the intruder.
Her seemingly jubilant post-murder behavior, including her decision to hold a posthumous birthday party for her sons near their graves, roused suspicion among family and police officers.
Her husband filed for divorce in June 2011, despite his claims that he believed her to be innocent.
She and England's Mary Ann Cotton are both women who were convicted of murdering their own children.
