FORT HOOD, Texas — A soldier shot seven times in the 2009 Fort Hood rampage says he's upset that the Army psychiatrist charged in the attack will represent himself at trial and get to question all the wounded soldiers.
Retired Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford said Monday that he expects Maj. Nidal Hasan will try to intimidate the more than two dozen soldiers wounded that day.
But Lunsford says he believes the soldiers will win in what he called a battle of wits.
A military judge ruled earlier Monday that Hasan could represent himself at trial, but said he must follow all court rules, including being courteous to witnesses and not getting personal.
Hasan faces the death penalty or life without parole if convicted of 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder.
