He was convicted of killing 13 people and wounding more 32 in the 2009 shooting at Fort Hood. But legal experts say it could still be years before the death sentence is carried out – if at all.<p>Under military law, Hasan’s case will automatically be appealed because he received a death sentence, even if he doesn’t want to appeal.<p>But before the case goes to an appeals court, the commanding general of Fort Hood must approve the findings and the sentence.

Hasan&#160;now faces either life in prison or the death penalty.&#160;Sentencing begins Monday.&#160;<p>Army psychiatrist Hasan acted as his own attorney in the case – but he did so little in his own defense that his standby counsel expressed concern that he was purposely seeking the death penalty.<p>Sentencing begins Monday. The sentencing phase runs similarly to a trial. The 13 members of the military panel will decide Hasan’s sentence—not the judge. Prosecutors&#160; are expected to call 19 witnesses, including family members. They’re expected to talk about the grief they experienced losing a loved one.<p> Fri, 23 Aug 2013 17:54:12 +0000 Kate McGee, KUT News 17210 at http://tpr.org Hasan Guilty on All Counts in Fort Hood Shooting Trial Jury Deliberating in Fort Hood Shooting Trial http://tpr.org/post/closing-arguments-fort-hood-shooting-trial-today <strong>Update: </strong>The jury in the court martial of Major Nidal Hasan has begun to deliberate.
