FORT HOOD, Texas - A US military judge on Wednesday set a March 2012 court martial date for a US Army psychiatrist charged in a 2009 killing rampage at a Texas military base.

Major Nidal Malik Hasan declined to enter a plea at an arraignment before Fort Hood Chief Circuit Judge Colonel Gregory Gross. Gross granted a request by Hasan's attorneys to defer the plea to a later, unspecified date.

Gross set a trial date of March 5, 2012, for Hasan's court martial, where he could face the death penalty if unanimously convicted by a 12-member jury of US soldiers.

Hasan, 40, is charged in the Fort Hood shootings that killed 13 people and wounded 32 others on Nov. 5, 2009.
