FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - A military hearing to determine whether
an Army psychiatrist should stand trial in last year's deadly
shooting rampage at Fort Hood is expected to wrap up Monday.
The hearing for Maj. Nidal Hasan has been on hold for about
three weeks. Wounded soldiers and other witnesses testified in
Lead defense attorney John Galligan says he doesn't plan to
present any evidence, so the hearing is expected to conclude
shortly after it resumes. Experts say not presenting defense
evidence at such a hearing isn't unusual.
Hasan is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32
counts of attempted premeditated murder in the Nov. 5, 2009,
rampage at the Texas Army post.
Fort Hood's commanding general will later decide whether Hasan
should be court-martialed.
