New judge named in Fort Hood case

Court-martial to move along after bias finding

FORT HOOD, Texas — The Army’s highest legal branch appointed a new judge to preside over the case of the Fort Hood shooting suspect, indicating the court-martial is on track to move forward after lengthy delays.

US Army Colonel Tara Osborn was named Tuesday to head the case of Major Nidal Hasan, who faces the death penalty if convicted in the 2009 shootings that killed 13 and wounded more than two dozen on the Texas Army post.
