The widow of a worker slain in the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, vowed not to let the killing by convicted gunman U.S. Army Major Nidal Hasan destroy her life and testified in a sentencing hearing on Tuesday that "he is not going to win."
Military prosecutors rested their case on Tuesday in the capital murder court-martial of an Army psychiatrist accused of opening fire on unarmed soldiers at Fort Hood in 2009, killing 13 and wounding more than 30.
The U.S. soldier who admitted killing 13 fellow soldiers and wounding 31 others in a shooting rampage at a Texas army base in 2009 told a mental health panel he wished to die while carrying out "jihad" because it would signal God had designated him as a religious martyr.
U.S. Army soldiers testifying in the court-martial of Major Nidal Hasan for the 2009 shooting spree that killed 13 and wounded 31 at Fort Hood, Texas, on Monday described carnage and confusion usually reserved for live combat.
The court-martial of Nidal Hasan begins on Tuesday, with the U.S. Army major facing charges he killed 13 people in a 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, the worst non-combat attack in history at a U.S. military base.
