Memorial Today For Ex Navy SEAL Sniper

Posted: Updated:

(KYTX/CNN) - A memorial service for the Navy SEAL sniper allegedly gunned down at a North Texas gun range takes place today. The service for Chris Kyle, author of the best-selling book "American Sniper," will be at Cowboys Stadium.

A 200-mile funeral process on Tuesday will take the body to Austin for burial. The four or five-hour motorcade will include members of the military, first responders and the Patriot Guard Riders, a motorcycle group. The motorcade could include thousands of people.

Eddie Ray Routh faces murder charges in the death of Kyle and another military veteran. A company founded by Kyle says Routh is a troubled veteran the other two were trying to help.
