Jury Selection Continues

Posted: Updated:

Jury selection enters its second week in the court martial of the army psychiatrist charged in the 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage.

Six new potential jurors will be brought in from army posts nationwide for questioning Monday.

Major Nidal Hasan is serving as his own attorney.

Ten potential jurors remain from a group of 20 who were questioned last week. 

Some soldiers who survived the shooting said waiting to testify in the court martial has caused them to miss family reunions, vacations, and other events.  They are tired of the unexpected legal snags and numerous delays.

Major Hasan faces execution or life without parole if convicted in the rampage that killed 13 people and injured nearly three dozen at the Texas army post.

Jury selection is expected to last a month, with testimony starting in August.
