The trial for the man accused of killing famed Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle has been delayed.
Last month, the Stephenville Empire-Tribune reported the date for the trial for Eddie Ray Routh was in jeopardy due to a dispute over DNA testing.
Routh, 26, remains jailed on $3 million bond, accused of fatally shooting Kyle and friend Chad Littlefield at an Erath County gun range.
The latest news from around North Texas.
This week, Routh's defense has asked for more time to comply with a new state law that expands DNA testing in death penalty cases. The paper reported Judge Jason Cashon granted a motion for continuance earlier this week.
It is not yet known how much more time is needed to complete the testing.
A date for a new trial has not yet been set.
