MIDLOTHIAN, Texas (AP) —  The sister of the Iraq War veteran charged with killing a former Navy SEAL sniper and his friend told a North Texas 911 operator that her brother was “psychotic.”

Midlothian police released the 911 call Tuesday. In it, Eddie Ray Routh’s sister says her brother came to her house and told her that he killed two people at a shooting range. The woman says she’s scared Routh may return to her house.

Routh is charged with gunning down former Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle and his friend Chad Littlefield at a gun range Saturday.

Routh’s brother-in-law told the 911 operator that Routh was recently diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and was released from a mental hospital about a week ago.

Routh is jailed in Erath County on $3 million bail.
