FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — The prosecution has rested in the sentencing phase for the soldier convicted in the 2009 mass shooting at Fort Hood.
Maj. Nidal Hasan is representing himself and can put on a defense later Tuesday.
He can make a sworn statement subject to cross examination, an unsworn statement with no cross, or both.
Hasan was convicted Friday of killing 13 people and wounding dozens more. Now, the jury is deciding whether he will receive the death penalty or life in prison.
Hasan originally said he'd like at least half a day to prepare a sentencing-phase defense. But he said Tuesday more time wasn't necessary.
He mounted virtually no defense during his trial and said he planned to enter no documents into evidence during sentencing. It wasn't clear if he'd call witnesses.
