Foot Hood Shooter Arrives at Fort Leavenworth

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — Fort Hood officials say the Army psychiatrist sentenced to death for the 2009 shooting rampage has arrived at the military prison at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas.  Officials released a statement yesterday (FRI) saying Major Nidal Hasan had arrived at the prison's death row.

A military jury convicted Hasan last week of killing 13 people and wounding more than 30 at Fort Hood, a sprawling Army post in central Texas. The same jurors deliberated less than two hours on Wednesday before deciding Hasan should be put to death.

Hasan joins just five other inmates on the military's death row.  Death sentences are rare in the military court system, and they're automatically appealed. The appeals process often takes years if not decades.  The military hasn't executed an active duty U.S. soldier since 1961.
