Routh, 27, is accused of killing former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle and Kyle’s best friend, Chad Littlefield, in February 2013 at an Erath County gun range. He confessed to the slayings but pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.

Routh’s ex-girlfriend, Jennifer Weed, testified Wednesday that Routh would become enraged over minor incidents. She described a time when he dropped his beer and reacted by throwing his shoe across the room.

But despite that behavior, Weed said she remained protective of Routh, even after he was arrested in connection with the killings.
