Death Penalty Trial For Military Shooter

(CNN)--A U-S Army general has approved a possible death penalty in the trial of Major Nidal Hassan.

You'll recall that Hassan is accused of going on a shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas in 2009.

As a result of the shooting, 13 people were killed and 32 injured.

Hassan's government-appointed defense attorney has urged the military against allowing the death penalty, saying the trial would be more time consuming and more expensive.
