New York, NY, March 27, 2007 - Court TV raises questions about the Darlie Routier case in THE WRONG MAN? premiering Friday, April 6, at 10 p.m. ET.

The one-hour show is part of the networks continuing series of THE WRONG MAN? investigations. New episodes will air Fridays at 10 p.m. ET throughout April.
In 1996, Darlie Routier and her two young sons were stabbed in their home located in an upscale suburb of Dallas, TX. Darlie says that she fought off an intruder, who escaped from the house after brutally attacking her and killing her two children.

Step-by-step, Palace and Britt take viewers through the investigation speaking with several crucial players including, a rare interview with Darlies husband, Darin Routier. In addition to speaking with family members and attorneys, they also visit the prison for an interview with Darlie to pose the question if the wrong person is serving a jail term for the crime.
