Testimony regarding motive

13 Feb, 2015

The testimony revolves around possible motive for the shooting deaths of Kyle and Littlefield in Routh’s trial. Gene Cole, a former deputy in Erath County, present at Routh’s arrest:

I heard Mr. Routh say, ‘I shot them because they wouldn’t talk to me. I was just riding in the back seat of the truck and nobody would talk to me. They were just taking me to the range, so I shot them. I feel bad about it, but they wouldn’t talk to me. I’m sure they’ve forgiven me.
