Recesses for the night
Ft. Hood – The jury panel sent a message to the judge asking to have the stipulated testimony from the man who cut down Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan in the middle of his murderous attack on Nov. 5, 2009, read back to them.
Then they requested to recess from their delibertions for the night.
According to the agreed stipulation of expected testimony given by Officer Mark Todd, he fired 5 shots at the former Army psychiatrist after pursuing him around the building and taking cover between cars in the parking lot.
When he saw Hasan wince a couple of times, he said in his deposition, he knew he had hit him, and watched as the doctor slid down a telephone pole where he had taken cover.
Court proceedings will resume at 9 a.m. Friday, August 23, when jurors resume their deliberations in the guilt or innocence phase of the General Court Martial.
