FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - The Army has charged the Fort Hood
shooting suspect with 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder.
These charges are added to the 13 premeditated murder charges
filed against Maj. Nidal Hasan in the wake of the Nov. 5 massacre at Fort Hood.
Hasan's attorney, John Galligan, said Wednesday the additional charges may not affect Hasan's punishment, if he is convicted, because premeditated murder carries the death penalty. Authorities
haven't said whether they plan to seek the death penalty.
