Good morning from the Great Place. It is day six of the court-martial of accused Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan.

Yesterday ended with the gory account of a civilian employee of the soldier readiness processing center. Today, according to comments Monday from the judge, we should hear some expert witnesses for the prosecution. It will be a nice change of pace from the bloody first-person accounts of the shooting from victims and eye witnesses.

So far, 62 witnesses have testified. At this pace, many expect the prosecution to rest their case this week, possibly as early as Wednesday. Hasan has told the court he only has two witnesses he intends to call in his defense.

I'm heading into the court today. For updates check @KDHcrime.

Media report:

The New York Times, Associated Press, Reuter's, San Antonio Express-News, Austin American-Statesman, Fox News, CNN, regional and local network outlets are here along with Univision.

The New York Times scored a few more pages of Hasan's sanity board report. Hasan states: "I’m paraplegic and could be in jail for the rest of my life. However, if I died by lethal injection I would still be a martyr." Hasan has released bits and pieces of the same report to Fox News through his civilian attorney John Galligan. The NY Times reporter here got this latest bit from Galligan as well.

The Associate Press via KTRK in Houston has a nice article about the fast-paced trial.

Reuter's writes about how "hell broke loose" after the shooting began.
