  1. Jury Finds ‘American Sniper’ Killer Guilty

    He’s facing life behind bars for killing the deadliest sniper in U.S. history. A Texas jury convicted Eddie Ray Routh yesterday of capital murder for the 2013 shooting deaths of former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle and his friend Chad Littlefield. The judge sentenced Routh — an ex-Marine who confessed to the killings but pleaded insanity — to life without parole after jurors deemed him legally sane. Routh’s motive remains unclear, and he has the right to appeal.
