FORT HOOD (AP) - The Army psychiatrist charged in the 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage wants his upcoming murder trial moved off the Texas Army post.

Maj. Nidal Hasan’s attorneys also are expected Thursday to discuss their request for changes in the military jury pool.

It’s unclear if the judge, Col. Tara Osborn, will rule on Hasan’s motion to plead guilty to lesser murder charges that don’t carry the death penalty. Prosecutors will proceed with the trial even if Osborn accepts those pleas, which are not part of any deal.

Hasan still faces execution if convicted of 13 counts of premeditated murder.

He wanted to plead guilty to those charges, but Army rules prohibit judges from accepting guilty pleas in death penalty cases.

Hasan also is charged with 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder.
