(Newser) – The man accused of killing 13 people at Fort Hood, Nidal Hasan, will make his first court appearance today in a preliminary hearing. His lawyers will seek to delay an Article 32 hearing that will determine if his case should go to trial, reports the AP. The army has already delivered 2000 pages of documents to Hasan's legal team and there is more evidence—including emails between the suspect and a Yemeni-American cleric—on the way, notes CNN. Hasan, who was paralyzed during the spree, has yet to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.
