More than 250 clear first phase of Kyle trial jury screening

The initial phase of jury selection in the American Sniper murder trial finished Friday with more than 250 people set to return on Monday.

A total of 263 potential jurors made it through two days of screening at the Erath County Justice Center in Stephenville. The final jury will be picked from that group.

The trial is for the accused killer of Navy SEAL Kyle and his friend, Chad Littlefield, who were gunned down two years ago.

Iraq war veteran Eddie Ray Routh will reportedly plead not guilty by reason of insanity once a jury is selected.
