FORT HOOD, Texas — The U.S. army psychiatrist suspected in a deadly rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, has been charged in a military court with 13 counts of premeditated murder.

Army Criminal Investigation Command spokesman Chris Grey told a news conference today at the Texas base that additional charges may also be filed against Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan.

Hasan is suspected of killing 12 soldiers and one civilian in last Thursday’s shooting rampage at Fort Hood.

He was shot and wounded by two police officers at the base, and remains in recovery at an army hospital in San Antonio.

His lawyer says he was read the charges at the hospital.
