A military jury has been picked for the trial of the Army psychiatrist facing the death penalty for allegedly gunning down 13 people at Fort Hood nearly four years ago.
FOX News Radio’s Eben Brown reports:
Army officials say they’ve picked the final members of a panel for the upcoming court-martial of the accused Fort Hood gunman Major Nidal Hasan. The panel is the military equivalent of a jury. In Hasan’s case it’s made up of senior officers: Nine Colonels, three Lieutenant Colonels and one Major. Thirteen people total, two of them women. One of the women is the highest ranking person on the panel and therefore will lead it, like a foreperson. Hasan’s trial for the 13 charges of murder stemming from the 2009 shooting spree begins August 6th.
