FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - The long-awaited first day in the trial of the soldier accused of killing 13 people at Fort Hood in 2009 has ended with new details from prosecutors but little word from the defendant.
    
Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan could face the death penalty if convicted of the numerous murder and attempted murder charges he's facing for the attack on the sprawling Texas base. It remains the deadliest mass shooting ever on a U.S. military installation.
    
Prosecutors detailed what they said was Hasan's meticulous plan to kill fellow soldiers while avoiding civilians, including stockpiling bullets and researching jihad online.
    
Hasan is representing himself and told jurors that evidence would show he was the gunman. He declined to cross-examine most witnesses, including victims who survived.
    
The trial is expected to last several weeks.
