A military jury panel has found Maj. Nidal Hasan guilty on all 45 charges stemming from the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood.
The jury reached a unanimous decision on all counts.
The unanimous conviction on several premeditated murder charges means the panel can sentence Hasan to death in the sentencing phase of the court martial.
Outside of the courtroom, legal experts said the large number of gun shots clearly displayed Hasan’s intent to kill.
"He had the volume of ammunition, and he had the position in the building and when he hit people he didn't just hit,” law professor Geoffrey Corn said. “It wasn't random. He was plugging people repeatedly."
The sentencing phase will begin on Monday when the prosecution and the defense will speak on what will be an appropriate punishment.
The government, focused on the death penalty, will bring the family members of victims to the stand.
Hasan barely spoke throughout the court martial, but did say the evidence would clearly point him out as the shooter that day.
In pretrial hearings, Hasan claimed he attacked the soldiers to protect Taliban leaders, but Judge Tara Osborn denied Hasan from using that defense in trial.
Legal experts say the sentencing phase is where Hasan will finally speak up.
"Because he knows he'll be able to testify in sentencing, unrestrained by limitations on offering evidence on the Defense of Others," Corn said.
Legal experts explained that any military death penalty case immediately goes to appellate court.
