Beard, other issues remain for new Fort Hood judge

DALLAS (AP) — The new judge taking over the Fort Hood shooting case will likely confront many of the questions that faced her predecessor.

One of those that helped lead to his removal is whether the suspect be allowed to keep his beard in court.

Delays have plagued the prosecution of Maj. Nidal Hasan, charged in the shooting rampage that left 13 dead more than three years ago.

The previous judge, Col. Gregory Gross, was ousted Monday by the military appeals court, which raised questions about whether Gross appeared impartial. Cross’ replacement on the case, Col. Tara Osborn, may be asked to re-examine any number of Gross’ rulings, including the beard issue.

Hasan has previously indicated he would like to plead guilty, but he can’t because he faces a possible death sentence.
