An Army psychiatrist who killed 13 people in a shooting rampage at a Texas Army base is set to appear in court.
A military judge has called a hearing in the case of the Army psychiatrist sentenced to death for gunning down 13 people at Fort Hood six years ago.
Fort Hood did not have a system in place that could have anticipated a deadly rampage last April that left four soldiers dead and 16 wounded, according to a U.S. Army report released Friday.
Survivors and relatives of those who died in the 2009 Fort Hood shooting filed a formal petition Wednesday to receive Purple Hearts and other benefits they have argued are long overdue.
Plans for a Central Texas memorial to victims of the 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage have fallen about $78,000 short to complete the site.
