STEPHENVILLE, Texas (AP) - A jury in Stephenville, Texas has found an ex-Marine guilty of killing "American Sniper" author Chris Kyle and another man, who were gunned down at a shooting range in February 2013.

Defense lawyers had argued that Eddie Ray Routh  suffered from psychosis when he turned his weapon on Kyle and Kyle's friend Chad Littlefield.

The men had taken Routh out shooting after Routh's mother asked Kyle to help him.

Routh will receive an automatic life sentence without parole.
