BREAKING: Murderer of ‘American Sniper’ Chris Kyle Found Guilty

Breaking tonight: The murderer of Chris Kyle, the subject of the hit movie American Sniper, has been found guilty.

Eddie Ray Routh has been found guilty of the 2013 murder of the famed Navy SESL.

Routh, 27, admitted to killing both men at the shooting range of Rough Creek Lodge and Resort, southwest of Dallas, on Feb. 2, 2013.

Routh pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to capital murder. His attorneys have said Routh, a former Marine corporal who served in Iraq but not in a combat role, was in the grip of a medically diagnosed psychosis at the time of the killings.

Prosecutors said that Routh was drinking and smoking marijuana on the morning of the crime. They argue that he was paranoid because he was high, and that he was angry about living with his parents, relationship problems, money and his job — then finally exploded when Kyle and Littlefield snubbed him.

This is a good outcome, certainly.
