(Newser) – Prosecutors beefed up the charges against Nadal Malik Hasan today to include the 32 people wounded in the Fort Hood shooting. Hasan now faces 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder in addition to the 13 counts of murder he had previously been charged with, Reuters reports. "Everything seems to be on the fast track in this case," noted Hasan's lawyer. If convicted, Hasan could face the death penalty.
