FORT HOOD (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — The military trial of the man accused of the 2009 shootings at Fort Hood will start Tuesday after no objections were raised during a final pretrial hearing.

Maj. Nidal Hasan and prosecutors watched Monday morning as the judge, Col. Tara Osborn, reviewed all of the 13 officers on the jury. Osborn asked the officers if they had seen any media coverage of the long-awaited trial or if there were any issues preventing them from serving or judging the case on its merits.

After all of the jurors answered, neither Hasan nor prosecutors raised any objections.

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

The trial is expected to involved testimony from hundreds and could last several months.
