Expert testifies ‘American Sniper’ killer faked paranoia, schizophrenia to avoid jail time
Eddie Ray Routh would say whatever it took to avoid going to jail, a medical expert testified Friday. Routh, 27, is charged with capital murder in the shooting deaths of former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield. The men took him to Rough Creek Lodge and Resort hoping to help him with post-traumatic stress disorder. Experts have said they don’t believe Routh suffered from PTSD.
