Jury Reaches Verdict in "American Sniper" Trial
$item.subtitle


The jury in the so-called "American Sniper" trial took less than three hours to reach a verdict and decide Eddie Ray Routh's fate. Routh was found guilty of the murder of Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield. The judge immediately sentenced Routh to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Nobody disputed the fact that Routh -- at a firing range in Texas, two years ago -- shot and killed two men. One of them was Chris Kyle, the subject of the hit movie "American Sniper." Routh's attorneys argued he was insane at the time of the shootings. In closing arguments, prosecutors insisted Routh still knew right from wrong.
