FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - A military prosecutor says an Army psychiatrist accused of the deadliest mass shooting ever on a U.S. military installation planned to "kill as many soldiers as he could."
The trial of Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan began Tuesday under heavy security at Fort Hood. The 42-year-old Hasan doesn't deny killing 13 people and wound 32 others in a November 2009 rampage on the Texas base.
Prosecutor Col. Steve Henricks told a jury of 13 military officers the prosecution will show them that Hasan picked the date of the attack for a reason.
Hasan is representing himself. Even though Hasan doesn't dispute the charges, military law barred him from pleading guilty because he faces the death penalty if convicted.
