FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - Military prosecutors have concluded their presentation in the life-or-death penalty phase for an Army psychiatrist convicted of killing 13 people and wounding more than 30 others in a Texas post rampage.

Prosecutors at Fort Hood wrapped up Tuesday afternoon and then the judge called a recess in the case of Maj. Nidal Hasan. Hasan said he wouldn't call witnesses or enter any evidence, though it was unclear if he planned to address jurors before they began deliberating his fate.

More than a dozen widows, mothers, fathers, children and soldiers testified over two days about their overwhelming grief and attempts at recovery since the 2009 attack.

Witnesses recalled the litany of moments that remind them of what they lost.
