FORT HOOD, Texas
FORT HOOD, Texas (Reuters) - U.S. Army Major Nidal Hasan, who faces the possibility of a death sentence for the November 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, rested his case in the sentencing phase of his trial on Tuesday without making any statement.
"The defense rests," said Hasan, who was convicted of killing 13 people and wounding 31 others, most of them unarmed soldiers, at the central Texas military base.
The jury of 13 military officers was instructed to return to court on Wednesday, when they are likely to begin deliberating Hasan's sentence.
