ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Thousands are expected to attend a public memorial service Monday for former Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle, who was killed at a Texas shooting range allegedly by a young veteran he was trying to help.

Mourners will gather at Cowboys Stadium to pay tribute to the 38 year old who was reputed to be the deadliest sniper in American military history.

Kyle left the Navy in 2009 after four tours of duty in Iraq and wrote the best-selling book "American Sniper."

Twenty-five year old Iraq War veteran Eddie Ray Routh has been charged with killing Kyle and his friend Chad Littlefield at a gun range Feb. 2.

Kyle will be buried at the Texas State Cemetery in Austin after a 200 mile funeral procession starting in the Dallas area Tuesday morning.
