FORT HOOD (April 16, 2013) --- Fort Hood soldiers used mirrors to check the underside of vehicles entering post for a pretrial hearing Tuesday for accused post gunman Maj. Nidal Hasan.

A Fort Hood police spokesperson said the checks were to ensure there’s nothing dangerous on the vehicles and said that certain security measures will continue to be implemented as Hasan's court-martial date nears.

Military Judge Tara Osborn has scheduled selection of a jury panel to begin on May 29 and the trial date for July 1.

Hasan faces the death penalty or life without parole if he’s convicted of 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.
