FORT HOOD -- The Article 32 Hearing for Maj. Nidal Hasan is complete.  Investigating officer, Col. James Pohl, has completed his recommendation on the findings from the hearing. Pohl said Hasan should stand trial and face the death penalty for last year's shooting. The report will be handed off to Hasan's defense team.

We spoke with a former military judge advocate who gave us his insight on what could happen in this case.
Former Military Judge Advocate, Richard Rasen, says "I would expect a general court martial that he will refer it as a capital case, meaning that the general court can give the death penalty."

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