The insanity defense--which did not work--and influence of American Sniper and the media on the proceedings is explored, along with the impact the families of Routh and Kyle on the jury. Was justice served by finding Routh guilty of murder? We discuss the outcome, plus the death penalty trial of Jodi Arias with defense attorney Mike Cavalluzzi on Crime Time, with Allison Hope Weiner.
