Sheriff: Vet charged in shootings won't see lawyer
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The Iraq War veteran charged with gunning down a former Navy SEAL sniper and his friend has refused to meet with his family or court-appointed attorney, a Texas sheriff said Tuesday.
Eddie Ray Routh, 25, remained in his cell Tuesday instead of meeting with his lawyer or relatives, said Erath County Sheriff Tommy Bryant. Routh had demanded a cigarette in exchange for a meeting, but smoking isn't allowed in the jail, Bryant said.
The sheriff said he doesn't know which relatives came to visit Routh in the jail in Stephenville, about 75 miles southwest of Fort Worth.
