The panel includes nine Army colonels, three lieutenant colonels and one major.

Hasan’s trial is expected to start Aug. 6.

Hasan, a former army psychiatrist, acted as his own attorney during the panel-selection process, but did not challenge any of the potential jurors, leaving it to prosecutors to make the selections.

Hasan faces the possibility of execution if he is convicted of killing 13 and wounding nearly three dozen more in the 2009 shooting rampage on the Texas Army post.
