Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan gets death sentence in Ft. Hood shootings
Molly Hennessy-FiskeFT. HOOD, Texas — A military jury handed down a rare death sentence Wednesday to Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, convicted of murder last week for the mass shooting at this central Texas Army post that killed 13 people and wounded more than 30 others.
The jury president, the highest-ranking colonel on the panel, announced the sentence in the afternoon as more than half a dozen victims' relatives looked on from the gallery.
Hasan, who refused to shave his beard for religious reasons, stared at the colonel as she explained that for the multiple murders, he should be forced to forfeit all pay, dismissed from the military and "put to death."
