AUSTIN, Texas - An Iraq war veteran accused of gunning down former US Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, a decorated military sniper, at a Texas shooting range was indicted by a grand jury on Wednesday.

Eddie Ray Routh, 25, faces a capital murder charge for allegedly killing Kyle, 38, and a neighbor of Kyle's, 35-year-old Chad Littlefield, with a semiautomatic pistol in February at a shooting range near Fort Worth.

The charge is punishable by life without parole or the death penalty.

The victims were at a shooting range designed by Kyle at the Rough Creek Lodge, an upscale retreat about 50 miles southwest of Fort Worth that offers horseback riding, fishing, golf, shooting sports and other outdoor activities.
