(KCEN) -- Tomorrow an appeals court will look at the fate of Nidal Hasan's beard.
That's after the accused Fort Hood shooter was held in contempt of court six times for breaking the military dress code.
Oral arguments over that issue will be held in a military court at Fort Belvoir, Virginia.
Judge Gregory Gross had wanted Hasan forcibly shaved.
That's because he isn't complying with court orders to cut off the beard.
But Hasan's defense says it's there for religious reasons.
Hasan is charged with killing 13 people and wounding 32 others in the November 2009 shooting spree on Fort Hood.
