Eddie Ray Routh verdict

Former Marine Routh was convicted of capital murder; His "life in prison without the possibility of parole" sentence was read by State District Judge Jason Cashon.

The prosecutors could have taken death penalty but they did not do so, in case Routh's camp would submit an appeal later on.

The verdict on Routh was an answer to the prayers of the parents of former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the author of "American Sniper," and his friend Chad Littlefield.

"We have waited two years for God to get justice on behalf of our son", Littlefield's mother, Judy said.
