American Sniper Killer: ‘I Had To Kill A Man’
The former Marine, 27, is accused of gunning down famed ex-Navy SEAL Sniper Chris Kyle and his friend Chad Littlefield after they took him to a Texas shooting range in February 2013.
His attorneys have claimed the defendant, who had PTSD, was in a psychotic state at the time and he has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. At the end of the trial, jurors must decide whether or not he intentionally committed the murders and knew that his actions were wrong.
As the trial enters its second week, Texas Ranger Danny Briley is expected to take the stand. Briley recorded Routh’s 50-minute confession just hours after he murdered the two men…
In the video, he reportedly says: ‘I knew if I did not take his soul, he was going to take mine. I had to kill a man today. It wasn’t a want to. It was a need. I was going to be the next one up there getting my head shot.’
