Hasan Hearings Moved to Washington, D.C. Area

FORT HOOD - The Army Court of Criminal Appeals has moved oral arguments on Nidal Hasan's appeals regarding shaving his beard to the Washington, D.C. area.

The next hearing will be at 1 p.m. October 11th, at Ft. Belvoir, Va. just outside the nation's capital.  The proceedings will be open to the public.

Hasan's capital murder trial is being delayed until the court rules on whether he can keep his beard in violation of military court guidelines.  The army psychiatrist claims he should be allowed to keep the beard on religious grounds.

He's charged with 13 counts of capital murder related to the November 2009 attack on Ft. Hood.

Hasan has been in a special room in the Bell County Jail since he was released from the hospital after those shootings.
