Judge Refuses to Delay Trial for Nidal Hasan

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - A military judge has refused to delay this month's scheduled trial of a Fort Hood officer charged in a deadly 2009 shooting rampage at the Central Texas post.

Maj. Nidal Hasan's attorneys on Thursday failed in their request to have the Army psychiatrist's court-martial pushed back from late May until Sept. 1.

Jury selection is to start May 29, with testimony to begin July 1. The trial will be held on the Central Texas Army post.

Hasan faces the death penalty or life in prison without parole if convicted of 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder.
