Major Nidal Hasan, the Muslim Army psychiatrist who turned his gun on fellow soldiers at Fort Hood in the name of jihad, was found guilty of all counts, including premeditated murder

He now faces the death penalty and could be the first person the U.S. military puts to death in more than 50 years. A 13-member panel, or jury, of high-ranking officers voted unanimously to convict Hasan, 42, on a slew of premeditated murder and attempted murder charges for killing 13 people and injuring 31 others in the November 5, 2009, attack at the U.S. Army base in Texas.
