Doctors to describe bodies of Fort Hood victims

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) -- Doctors who examined the bodies of the 13 people killed in the Fort Hood rampage are expected to resume testifying at the U.S. trial of the accused gunman.

So far, doctors who examined seven bodies have described how some showed signs that they were shot while lying on the floor in November 2009. They had been preparing to deploy to Afghanistan.

Army psychiatrist Nidal Hasan is accused of opening fire on his fellow soldiers, who were unarmed. He faces the death penalty if convicted.

Hasan has told the jury he was the gunman and has put up a minimal defense. His court-appointed lawyers have protested that he is trying to get the death penalty.
