Military judge calls hearing in 2009 Fort Hood gunman's case
A military judge has called a hearing in the case of the Army psychiatrist sentenced to death for gunning down 13 people at Fort Hood six years ago.
Fort Hood officials said Friday that a hearing in Maj. Nidal Hasan’s case will be held next week.
The hearing will take place at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, where Hasan is being held on death row for the 2009 attacks that also wounded more than 30 people.
Post officials say the judge, Col. Tara Osborn, on Thursday wants to review “routine matters” including Hasan’s post-trial rights and the attorneys representing him.
Hasan’s mandatory appeals before military appellate courts have not yet begun.
