FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — Six Army officers have been dismissed as potential jurors on the first day of jury selection in the murder trial of the Fort Hood shooting suspect.
The first group of 20 potential jurors in Maj. Nidal Hasan's court-martial arrived Tuesday afternoon from Army posts nationwide.
Hasan faces execution or life without parole if convicted in the 2009 rampage that killed 13 and wounded nearly three dozen on the Texas Army post.
The judge, Col. Tara Osborn, and prosecutors questioned the group for more than an hour, but Hasan didn't ask any questions.
Prosecutors said six in the group should be dismissed based on their answers in questionnaires and other reasons. One officer knew one of the 13 victims. The judge granted the request.
Individual questioning is to start Wednesday.
