The trial of¬†Eddie Ray Routh, accused of the murder of ‚ÄúAmerican Sniper‚ÄĚ Chris Kyle and his friend Chad Littlefield, continued today in Texas. On Thursday, the defense offered a psychiatrist as an expert witness who testified that Routh was¬†exhibiting signs of schizophrenia two years before the slaying. Friday, the prosecution presented its rebuttal, repeating its contention that drugs were responsible for Routh‚Äôs state of mind at the time of the shooting.
Testimony from both sides appears to fall short of proving that Routh was unaware¬†that his actions were wrong.
Friday‚Äôs chief witness was forensic psychologist Dr. Randall¬†Price.
To anyone who read of Routh‚Äôs belief that his co-workers were hybrid pig-men and was reminded of the ‚ÄúSeinfeld‚ÄĚ episode where Kramer searches the hospital for ‚Äúthe pig-man,‚ÄĚ you weren‚Äôt far off.
Testimony then turned to the night of Kyle‚Äôs and Littlefield‚Äôs murders.
The trial continued into Friday afternoon with another witness,¬†Dr. Michael Arambula, taking the stand.
