The prosecution rested in the court-martial of Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, who could face the death penalty if he's convicted in a shooting spree that killed 13 people at Fort Hood, Texas, in 2009. Hasan, a military psychiatrist who is representing himself, indicated that he might not offer any defense when he gets his turn. A U.S.-born Muslim, Hasan has admitted in court that he carried out the shootings, which wounded more than 30 other people in November 2009.
