Nidal Hasan Sentenced to Death for Fort Hood Shooting

Exactly what he wanted


FORT HOOD, Texas — Nidal Hasan, the Army psychiatrist convicted of murdering 13 and injuring 31 others here in a November 2009 shooting spree, received the death sentence Wednesday from a military jury.

Prosecutors had asked the 13-member jury for the death sentence, saying his murderous shooting spree at the sprawling military base here left tragic and devastating loss for victims and loved ones.

Nadal, 42, was convicted last week on 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 charges of attempted premeditated murder.
