Issues to be resolved at Fort Hood suspect hearing

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — An Army psychiatrist charged with gunning down fellow soldiers in a deadly 2009 attack at Fort Hood is to appear at a hearing less than two weeks before he goes on trial.

A military judge is to rule on pending matters Thursday in Maj. Nidal Hasan’s case. They include whether to allow certain evidence to be presented during his court-martial.

The matters have been on hold since last month, when Hasan asked to serve as his own attorney less than a week before jury selection. His request was granted.

Jury selection is now set to start July 9. Testimony could begin as early as Aug. 6.
