Defense attorneys ordered to help the Army psychiatrist charged in the deadly Fort Hood shooting rampage say they’re being asked to cross ethical lines.
The man accused of the worst shooting ever on an American military installation on Thursday asked a judge to move his trial out of Texas. No decision was made on the request but a judge did set his trail date.
The Army psychiatrist charged in the 2009 Fort Hood massacre twice offered to plead guilty and “accept full responsibility” for the crime earlier this year, his lead defense attorney said Thursday.
All but a few soldiers in the last U.S. combat brigade to leave Iraq are back home just in time for Christmas. Nearly 200 soldiers arrived at Fort Hood on Saturday, while others arrived earlier in the week.
Friday many families of the 12 soldiers and one civilian who died during a shooting rampage at Fort Hood, met each other for the first time at the anniversary memorial, hugging and weeping together.
