🕐 1 min read

STEPHENVILLE, Texas (AP) — The North Texas man accused of killing former Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle and another man is set to go to trial in May.

Eddie Ray Routh (rowth) has been charged with two counts of capital murder in connection with the Feb. 2, 2013, slayings of Kyle, 38, and Chad Littlefield, 35, at a Glen Rose shooting range.

Routh’s trial is set to begin on May 5 in Stephenville, located about 100 miles southwest of Dallas.

Authorities say that after the shooting, the 26-year-old Routh fled in Kyle’s pickup. He was captured a few hours later at his sister’s home in Lancaster.

Kyle is considered to be the deadliest sniper in American history. His account of life during and after war, “American Sniper,” was a best-seller.
