Fort Hood shooting suspect’s hearing delayed a day
Question of the Day
FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — The investigating officer in the case of an Army psychiatrist accused in the killing of 13 military personnel at Fort Hood has adjourned the proceedings with no witnesses called.
Col. James L. Pohl says he will consider Wednesday whether to delay the hearing for a month. Maj. Nidal Hasan’s defense attorneys have requested the delay until Nov. 8 and say they need to submit their reasons in writing, which will take a day.
The hearing will resume 9 a.m. Wednesday.
Col. Michael Mulligan, the lead prosecutor, says he opposes any further delays and that the defense has had months to prepare.
The hearing involving Hasan is being held under tight security. The 40-year-old is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder in the Nov. 5 attack.
