An Army psychiatrist charged in the worst mass shooting on a US military installation will return to court this week for a pre-trial hearing.

Last month, Maj. Nidal Hasan's attorneys requested an expert witness along with a jury consultant to analyze the extensive pre-trial publicity of the November 2009 rampage.

According to Fort Hood officials, Judge Col. Gregory Gross will decide whether to grant Hasan's defense with those two experts, a decision that would require government funding. 

Wednesday's scheduled hearing will also allow the judge to hear new defense motions about death penalty issues.The actual trial is set to begin in March.

Hasan is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder.
