The Last Defense: DARLIE ROUTIER: The Woman (6/26)
PROSECUTORS PRESENT DAMAGING VIDEO OF DARLIE ROUTIER SPRAYING SILLY STRING AT HER CHILDREN’S GRAVESITE AS THE TRIAL CONTINUES, ON VIOLA DAVIS AND JULIUS TENNON’S DOCUMENTARY SERIES, ABC’S ‘THE LAST DEFENSE,’ TUESDAY, JUNE 26
“DARLIE ROUTIER: The Woman” – The trial of Darlie Routier heats up. Facing one of Texas’ top defense lawyers, the prosecution argues that Darlie’s actions and demeanor are not that of a grieving mother but of a person capable of murdering her own children. The defense strikes back by questioning the state’s theory of motive and the characterization of Darlie. However, when the prosecution presents a video of Darlie having a party at her children’s gravesite in the now infamous “silly string video,” it seems her fate is sealed. Author Barbara Davis, who was at the original trial, gives a firsthand account on “The Last Defense,” TUESDAY, JUNE 26 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.
“DARLIE ROUTIER: The Woman” was directed by Jeremiah Crowell.
