FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - A military judge has adjourned the Fort Hood trial for the day after the soldier accused in the shooting called no witnesses and rested his case.

Col. Tara Osborn said Wednesday the trial would resume on Thursday morning. She asked prosecutors if they were ready to present closing arguments on Wednesday, but they said they would prefer to wait until Thursday.

Earlier Wednesday morning, Maj. Nidal Hasan told Osborn he wouldn't be calling any witnesses in his defense. Hasan is representing himself in his trial.

Hasan has sat mostly silent during the trial's first two weeks, raising few objections and briefly questioning only three of prosecutors' nearly 90 witnesses.

Hasan is accused of killing 13 people at the Texas military base. He faces the death penalty if convicted.
