FORT HOOD (AP) - A military judge is to hear arguments on whether to postpone until October the trial of the Army psychiatrist charged in the deadly Fort Hood shooting rampage.

Maj. Nidal Hasan’s attorneys have not said why they want the trial postponed from June until October. The judge, Col. Gregory Gross, previously delayed it from March until June.

Last week, Gross granted the defense team’s request for a government-paid forensic pathologist to review autopsy reports from the November 2009 attack. He denied prosecutors’ request to admit evidence before the trial, including 911 calls made from the Texas Army post during the attack.

Hasan is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder. He faces the death penalty if convicted.
