STEPHENVILLE, TEXAS — The North Texas man accused of killing former Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle and another man has been arraigned on two counts of capital murder.

Eddie Ray Routh made a brief court appearance Tuesday in Erath County. The 25-year-old Routh is an Iraq War veteran charged with killing Kyle and Chad Littlefield in February at a gun range. After he allegedly shot them, Routh fled in Kyle’s pickup. He was captured a few hours later at his sister’s home in Lancaster.

Routh was indicted in July. His trial is scheduled to begin Oct. 21 and he remains jailed in lieu of $3 million bail.

Kyle is considered to be the deadliest sniper in American history. His account of life during and after war, “American Sniper,” was a best-seller.
