STEPHENVILLE, Texas (AP) - A Texas Ranger testifying at the murder trial of a former Marine charged with killing famed Navy SEAL Chris Kyle and his friend said the two victims were armed when they were shot multiple times.
Texas Ranger Michael Adcock testified Thursday that it didn't appear the weapons carried by Kyle and Chad Littlefield were ever removed from their holsters. Their wounds included multiple gunshots to the back.
Defense attorneys for 27-year-old Eddie Ray Routh say he was insane when Kyle and Littlefield took him to a shooting range in February 2013 to provide support and camaraderie.
Routh's mother had asked Kyle, whose wartime heroics were depicted in the best-selling book "American Sniper" and the Oscar-nominated film by the same name, to help her son overcome personal troubles.
