FORT HOOD (AP) - A military judge is to decide if a terrorism expert will testify during the trial of the Army psychiatrist charged in the deadly Fort Hood shooting rampage.

Maj. Nidal Hasan’s defense team is trying to stop Evan Kohlmann from testifying at the court-martial starting in less than two weeks. They are questioning the methods Kohlmann used in his study of the case in which he concluded that Hasan is a homegrown terrorist.

Kohlmann is expected to be questioned during a pretrial hearing Thursday. He has testified for the government in more than two dozen terrorism cases.

Hasan is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder in the November 2009 shootings at the Texas Army post.

Hasan faces the death penalty if convicted.
