Eddie Ray Routh's cellphone may contain pictures of the alleged killer posing alongside American Sniper author Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield before their deaths at a Texas shooting range, the AP reports. Police have obtained a search warrant for the phone's pictures, text messages, and recent call activity.

The phone was seized from Routh's home, along with a box of 9mm ammo, drug paraphernalia, and a blue-jean jacket. (Read more Eddie Ray Routh stories.)
