Friday, Maj. Nidal Hasan was found guilty of 13 counts of murder and 32 counts of attempted murder in a shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas. Hasan will be facing a possibility of a death penalty when his court-martial continues on Monday, where at least 1 family member of each of the 13 that were slain will speak in testimony..
He has already admitted guilt, but military courts do not allow the guilty plea. He will be given a chance to explain himself to the jury next week, acting as his own attorney. Hasan’s assisting attorneys have said that Hasan has been working with the prosecution because he actually wants the death penalty.
Nidal Hasan has maintained that it was his duty to Jihad to kill as many people as possible.
