Major Nidal Hasan Sentenced to Death for 2009 Fort Hood Shooting Rampage

Army Major Nidal Hasan was sentenced to death earlier today after being convicted last week of killing 13 people at Fort Hood in 2009.  The shooting rampage at Fort Hood injured dozens and shocked the nation.

Hasan will be transferred to Fort Leavenworth in Kansas to be held during the appeals process before the death sentence could be carried out.

During the trial, military prosecutors called over 80 witnesses and even more during the sentencing phase. However, Hasan, acting as his own attorney, rested his case without calling a single person to testify and made no closing argument. Hasan also gave no final statement to jurors during the sentencing phase.

According to the Associated Press, no American soldier has been executed since 1961.
