FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - Prosecutors have wound up presenting
evidence at a hearing to determine if the Army psychiatrist accused
in last year's Fort Hood mass shooting should stand trial.
Many of the 56 witnesses called to testify at the Article 32
hearing described how 40-year-old Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire and
wounded them Nov. 5 at a medical processing center at the Texas
Lt. Col. James Pohl, the investigating officer, has delayed
additional proceedings until Nov. 15.
Defense attorneys may or may not present a case. They sought the
delay Thursday until a psychiatric evaluation of their
American-born Muslim client can be finished.
Hasan faces 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of
attempted premeditated murder.
