We heard some bizarre testimony from the “American Sniper” murder trial last week, and today, both the prosecution and defense made their closing statements. Again, to be found not guilty by reason of insanity, the prosecution would have to prove that accused shooter Eddie Ray Routh was unaware that what he did was wrong.

Up first was prosecuting attorney Jane Starnes.

Next up, defense attorneys Tim Moore, R. Shay Isham and J. Warren St. John.
