A Texas jury has found Eddie Ray Routh guilty of the 2013 murder of Chris Kyle, the former Navy SEAL who inspired the film American Sniper, rejecting the defense's claims that Routh was legally insane at the time, the New York Times reports.

Prosecutors did not seek a death sentence in the two-week trial. As such, Routh faces a sentence of life in prison without parole, the Times reports.

Routh was also found guilty in the murder of Kyle's friend Chad Littlefield.
