Jurors to get more autopsies on slain soldiers

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — Pathologists are to present more autopsy results on soldiers massacred in a 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood.

The results are expected to take up most of Wednesday’s proceedings in the court-martial of Maj. Nidal Hasan.

Military lawyers ordered to help Hasan insist that the 42-year-old Army psychiatrist wants jurors to sentence him to death. Hasan is representing himself during the trial.

Hasan, an American-born Muslim, was left paralyzed from the waist down after Fort Hood police officers ended the rampage by shooting him in the back.

Hasan has sat mostly silent during the trial, enabling prosecutors to zip through more than 60 witnesses in only four days.
