Jury selection will start July 9 in the murder trial of the Army psychiatrist charged in the deadly 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage.

The judge set the date after rejecting Maj. Nidal Hasan's request for a three-month trial delay.

Col. Tara Osborn, the judge, says testimony will start Aug. 6 at the earliest.

Jury selection will start later in July if a jury consultant hired for Hasan's defense is unavailable. Right now he's scheduled to be working on another case in mid-July.

Hasan faces the death penalty or life in prison without parole if convicted in the attack that left 13 dead on the Texas Army post.
