Former Lubbock resident survives tornado

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A former Lubbock resident is recovering after her home was destroyed by an East Texas tornado. Sarilda Routier is the mother-in-law of Darlie Routier who sits on death row.

In 1996, Darlie and her two young sons were stabbed in their home in Rowlett, Texas. Darlie says an intruder attacked them, killing her sons, then fled the scene. She was convicted of the murders, she says she did not commit. Sarilda Routier still maintains Darlie's innocence.

Now 62-years-old, Sarilda is thankful to be alive after coming face to face with a tornado. Routier was at the door of their home when the twister hit. Sarilda was found about 25 feet away from her home. She was treated in a Tyler hospital for bruises on her abdomen.
