The trial for the man accused of killing a Navy SEAL sniper and his friend has been delayed.

Eddie Ray Routh was set to go on trial Monday for the murders of sniper and author Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield, but the trial has been postponed.

No new trial date was immediately announced.

Routh is accused of killing the two men at a gun range in Erath County last February. Routh's family said he suffered from post traumatic stress disorder.
