LUBBOCK, TX (AP) - The husband of Texas death row inmate Darlie Routier has divorced the former homemaker who was condemned after her young sons were fatally stabbed in their suburban Dallas home.

Darin Routier said after filing for divorce in June that he still believed the woman was innocent. The divorce was finalized Friday in Lubbock County, where Darin Routier lives with the pair's youngest son.

Darlie Routier was convicted in 1997 of killing 5-year-old Damon a year earlier. The 40-year-old also was charged with killing Damon's 6-year-old brother, Devon, but was not tried for the death.

The woman contends an unidentified intruder killed the boys and stabbed her in their Rowlett home. One of 10 women awaiting lethal injection in Texas, Darlie Routier is housed in Gatesville, between Dallas and Austin.
