STEPHENVILLE, Texas – The widow of the former Navy SEAL depicted in the blockbuster film “American Sniper” will be among the first to testify against the man charged with killing her husband.

A day before opening statements in the trial of former Marine Eddie Ray Routh, prosecutors said Tuesday that Chris Kyle’s widow, Taya, will take the stand. They also filed documents outlining “bad acts” and other offences allegedly committed by Routh that they may want to bring before the jury.

Defence attorneys have already said they will pursue an insanity defence for Routh, who family members said suffered from
post-traumatic stress disorder.

Routh, 27, faces life in prison without parole if convicted of capital murder in the shooting deaths of Kyle and Kyle’s friend Chad Littlefield as the pair tried to help Routh at a shooting range two years ago.
