Nidal Hasan sentenced to death for Ft. Hood shooting spree


FORT HOOD, Texas- After just a two hours of deliberation, a jury has sentenced Major Nidal Hasan to death.

Hassan was convicted of the 2009 massacre on the base that left 13 people dead and 32 others wounded.

The jury unanimously recommended the death penalty for Hasan Wednesday afternoon.

During his trial, Hasan did not take the stand and did not call any witnesses for his defense.

He will now be flown to the maximum security prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, where he will be placed on death row.
