FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - Military prosecutors could soon wrap up their case against the Army psychiatrist accused of killing 13 people during last year's shooting rampage at Fort Hood.

Prosecutors are expected to present the last of their evidence Thursday during an Article 32 hearing for Maj. Nidal Hasan.

The hearing will determine whether Hasan stands trial on 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder for the Nov. 5 shootings.

The hearing began last week, and prosecutors have already called 53 witnesses. Defense attorneys haven't revealed their plans.

On Wednesday, witnesses detailed the end of the 10-minute rampage - and how it could have been far worse. Army investigators testified about finding Hasan carrying 177 unfired rounds.
