Judge delays Fort Hood trial until August

Army psychiatrist charged in rampage faces the death penalty if convicted

Associated Press

FORT HOOD, Texas — A military judge has once again postponed the trial of the Army psychiatrist charged in the deadly Fort Hood shooting rampage.

Maj. Nidal Hasan's court martial is now set to begin in August instead of June on the Texas Army post. The judge issued his ruling Wednesday.

Defense attorneys had requested a delay until October. They said they needed more time to review the numerous documents in the case.

Earlier this year, the judge delayed the trial from March until June.

Hasan faces the death penalty if convicted of 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder in the November 2009 rampage.

The 41-year-old Hasan remains jailed. He's paralyzed from the waist down after being shot by police the day of the attack.
