Judge To Consider Delaying Ft. Hood Suspect's Trial

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - A military judge on Thursday could decide whether to delay the murder trial for the Army psychiatrist charged in the Fort Hood shooting rampage.

Maj. Nidal Hasan will be back in court at a hearing where his attorneys are expected to tell the judge why they're seeking the delay.

The trial is set to begin in March and last about two months at the Texas Army post. Military jurors will be brought from Fort Sill, Okla.

Hasan is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder. He faces the death penalty or life without parole if convicted in the November 2009 shootings.

The 41-year-old Hasan remains jailed. He was paralyzed from the waist down after being shot by police that day.
