Fort Hood: Hearing On Motions In Case Of Accused Gunman Rescheduled

FORT HOOD (February 26, 2013)—Military judge Col. Tara Osborn has rescheduled a hearing on motions in the case of accused Fort Hood gunman Maj. Nidal Hasan for administrative reasons, the Army said Tuesday.

A hearing originally scheduled for Wednesday will now be held Thursday.

Hasan is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder in the Nov. 5, 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood’s Soldier Readiness Center.

Osborn is expected to hear arguments on defense motions to move Hasan’s court-martial from Fort Hood and to change the potential members of the panel that will hear the trial, as well as several defense motions involving rules that apply during sentencing proceedings, Fort Hood said.

A hearing is scheduled in March on a defense request to reconsider the admissibility of the testimony of terrorism expert Evan Kohlmann, which the defense wants to limit.
