FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - Maj. Nidal Hasan may welcome a death sentence as a pathway to martyrdom. But the rules of military justice won't let him go down without a fight - even if he doesn't want one.
The Army psychiatrist convicted in the 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage was sentenced to death Wednesday for killing 13 and wounding more than 30. He offered little defense while acting as his own attorney.
But before an execution date is set, Hasan faces years, if not decades, of appeals. There will be one key difference: Unlike the trial, he won't be able to represent himself. Appointed attorneys will handle the case on his behalf.
