What a piece of crap. Chris Kyle’s widow breaks down on the stand describing the last time she saw him – as trial hears how Routh killed American Sniper Chris Kyle with five shots to the back and one to the head.
Chris Kyle’s widow broke down in tears on Wednesday as she described the last time she saw her husband alive on the day he died, telling a Texas courtroom, ‘We said we loved each other and gave each other a hug and kissed.’
Giving testimony sat in front of the man who shot dead Kyle and his friend Chad Littlefield on February 2, 2013, Taya Kyle, 40, struggled to maintain her composure on the stand during trying and difficult testimony.
Often stopping to wipe away tears, Taya told the court she had a ‘bad feeling’ that Saturday afternoon around 2pm or 3pm when Kyle spoke to her from the Rough Creek Ranch gun range.
She said she could tell, ‘Something was up, but I didn’t know exactly what’, shortly before Kyle was shot five times in the back and once in the head by troubled Marine veteran Eddie Ray Routh.
Indeed, the court had earlier heard during opening statements that ‘American Sniper’ Kyle was so concerned at the situation unfolding at the range he texted Littlefield and wrote, ‘This dude is straight-up nuts’.
All this came after Routh pleaded not guilty on Wednesday morning.
While the fact he killed Kyle and Littlefield is not disputed, his mental competency is.
Routh’s lawyers will try to show he did not know right from wrong at the time while the prosecution will have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt he did.
