The Army psychiatrist charged in the deadly Fort Hood rampage which killed 13 people could face the death penalty if convicted in a military court.

Major Nidal Hasan is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder in the November 2009 shooting spree.

It was not immediately clear when Hasan will be arraigned in a Fort Hood courtroom. He must plead not guilty because it is a death-penalty case, according to military law.
