FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — A hearing to determine if an Army psychiatrist should stand trial in the worst mass shooting on a U.S. military base has ended with defense lawyers presenting no evidence.

After a three-week break, accused gunman Maj. Nidal Hasan was back in court Monday at Fort Hood to resume his Article 32 hearing. His lawyers chose to call no witnesses at the military court proceeding.

Col. James Pohl, the investigating officer in the case, will recommend whether Hasan should go to trial on 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder for last November’s attack at the Texas post.

That decision — and whether the Army will seek the death penalty — will be made by Fort Hood’s commanding general.

Dear God, please have them seek the death penalty. I'm sorry, but some people do not deserve to live, and he is one of them.
