FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Police documents say the Iraq War veteran charged with killing a former Navy SEAL sniper and his friend on a Texas shooting range told a relative that he "traded his soul for a new truck."
An Erath County arrest warrant affidavit obtained by WFAA-TV says Eddie Ray Routh also said he wanted to drive to Oklahoma to avoid Texas authorities.
Routh is charged with one count of capital murder and two counts of murder in the shooting deaths of ex-Navy SEAL Chris Kyle and his friend Chad Littlefield at a shooting range Saturday.
Authorities say he was driving Kyle's pickup when he was arrested. The three had gone to the range together.
The affidavit says Kyle and Littlefield were shot multiple times and numerous guns were at the scene.
