Routh killed Kyle, a former Navy SEAL sniper whose book about his experiences in war was turned into an Oscar-nominated movie released last year.
 
He will receive an automatic life sentence in the death of Kyle and his friend, Chad Littlefield. His defense team had argued that he was insane and did not know the killings were wrong at the time.
