A jury of 13 high-ranking Army officers, after more than three hours of deliberations Thursday, did not reach a verdict in the court-martial of Maj. Nidal Hasan, who faces the death penalty on 45 counts of premeditated murder and attempted premeditated murder. They will resume deliberations Friday morning.
Before retiring for the day, jurors asked to hear again the written statement of former Fort Hood officer Mark Todd, who was unable to testify in person because of an unspecified medical condition. Todd, who ended the Nov. 5, 2009, rampage by shooting and paralyzing Hasan, was the only person mentioned in 32 attempted murder charges who was not shot by Hasan.
