Man will appeal "American Sniper" conviction

Attorneys for the man convicted of killing "American Sniper" Chris Kyle and his friend say they will appeal his conviction on the grounds that he could not get a fair trial in the small town of Stephenville, Texas. The man's attorneys felt that exposure to the blockbuster film, "American Sniper," based on Kyle's autobiography, combined with Kyle's hero status in his local community, had unfairly biased the local jury against their client.
