Hasan declines to give closing argument in shooting of Ft. Hood soldiers case

Thursday, August 22, 2013 - 12:41pm

Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, who admitted killing 13 people and wounding 32 others in November 2009, declined to give closing statement at court-martial on Thursday.

Hasan also said jurors shouldn't be allowed to consider lesser charges because he did not shoot soldiers at Fort Hood in "the heat of sudden passion."

A judge gave instructions to the jury of 13 officers before closing arguments began.

The jury will now deliberate the fate of Hasan.
