Day two of testimony Thursday in the capital murder trial of Eddie Routh centered on the high-speed chase that led to his arrest.
Jurors watched video from Lancaster police officer Flavio Salazarís dash camera. The video showed Routh speed away from officers as they tried to talk him out of Chris Kyleís truck.
During the chase a police cruiser rammed into the truck which eventually led to the vehicle coming to a stop. Routh exited the truck with his hands up, then knelt on the ground. The officers charged him with their guns drawn.
A second video from an officer's body camera showed the events leading up to the chase when officers tried to talk Routh out of the truck.
ďWe canít let you move right now,Ē an officer told Routh.
ďIím not going to move, Iím going to sit right here where Iím at. Why canít you come out here to the truck with me?Ē Routh replied.
Routh is accused of killing Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield at a shooting range at Rough Creek Lodge on Feb. 2, 2013.
Other testimony Thursday included technical aspects of the case including weapons used in the slayings and evidence from the crime scene.
Texas Ranger Michael Adcock said Kyle and Littlefieldís handguns were still holstered at their waists with the safeties on when their bodies were found. The men died from multiple gunshot wounds.†
Testimony will resume at 9 a.m. Friday at the Donald R. Jones Justice Center.
