Testimony concludes in ‘American Sniper’ trial
STEPHENVILLE, Texas (AP) — Testimony has concluded in the trial of an ex-Marine accused of killing “American Sniper” author Chris Kyle and another man.
Attorneys in the trial of Eddie Ray Routh (ROWTH) are to deliver closing arguments by the end of the day Tuesday.
The final person to testify was defense rebuttal witness Dr. Mitchell Dunn, who had also testified earlier.
Under defense questioning, Dunn said he didn’t believe Routh was intoxicated when Kyle and Chad Littlefield were shot. Dunn said he thought Routh was psychotic at the time of the Feb. 2, 2013, shooting, and he didn’t think it was “marijuana-induced psychosis.”
Previously, Dunn testified that Routh tested positive for marijuana use each time he was hospitalized for suicidal tendencies.
Routh’s attorneys have mounted an insanity defense.
