UPDATE: Major Nidal Hasan Convicted Of Murder

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE:

Major Nidal Hasan has been sentenced to death.

After less than two hours of deliberation on August 28, the panel determined Hasan's fate.

Lead prosecutor Col. Michael Mulligan gave a closing argument stating that Hasan's actions created a debt to society and this debt should be paid with his life.

Major Hasan did not give a closing argument. 

Included in the panel's punishment is forfeiture of all pay and allowances, dismissal from service, and a death sentence.

The military justice system requires this case be automatically appealed to the U.S. Army Criminal Court of Appeals and then to the United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces. 

While in the appeal process, Major Hasan will be improsoned in the U.S. Disiplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.

----------------------------------------

Jury convicts Major Nadal Hasan after two days of deliberation.

Major Hasan is found guilty of 13 counts of premeditated murder in the 2009 massacre at Fort Hood. 

Hasan killed 13 people and wounded dozens more in a shooting rampage.

Jurors voted unanimously to convict Hasan.  The vote allows Prosecutors to seek death penalty.

It took more than 2 weeks to get through the testimony, watching videos, and hearing descriptions from survivors. 

This week, Major Hasan admitted he was the shooter. 

With a solid conviction, the trial moves into the sentencing phase.

Sentencing could last a week.  The court will also hear from the families of victims.
