Fort Hood Suspect Must Enter Pleas Before Trial

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - The Army psychiatrist charged in the deadly Fort Hood shooting rampage is expected to plead not guilty to the charges.
    
A military judge has ordered today's hearing for Maj. Nidal Hasan before his trial starts Monday. He is not allowed to plead guilty to the 13 counts of premeditated murder. That's because the charges carry death as the maximum punishment and the government is pursuing the death penalty in Hasan's case.
    
He also is charged with 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder in the 2009 attack at the Texas Army post. He is allowed to plead guilty to those charges. But his former attorney John Galligan says that is unlikely. Galligan also says efforts to reach a plea deal failed more than a year ago.
