Now on Death Row, Fort Hood Gunman Hasan to Appear in Court

Thursday, 29 Jan 2015 06:58 AM

An Army psychiatrist who killed 13 people in a shooting spree at a Texas Army base is set to appear in court.

Nidal Hasan has a hearing Thursday at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, where he is being held on military death row. Army officials say the judge, Col. Tara Osborn, wants to review "routine matters" in Hasan's case.

Among those issues is who defends Hasan during his appeals. His lead defense counsel is now an Army judge but has continued to represent him.

Nearly 18 months after being sentenced to death, Hasan has not yet had his case reviewed by officials at Fort Hood six years ago.

That review is one of several mandatory steps in military death penalty cases.
