(KCEN) -- Pretrial hearing dates have been set in the court martial case of Maj. Nidal Hasan.
The accused Fort Hood shooter will be back in a military courtroom on post on January 30, and the hearings are expected to last until February 1.
Presiding judge Col. Tara Osborn will reconsider several issues including whether the defense should receive media analyst services at the government's expense.
Since she is a new judge on the case, she will also have to re rule on whether this is classified as a capital murder trial.
Osborn will also re rule on whether Hasan has the right to plead guilty.
The court may also take up the issue of Hasan's beard which violates military dress code.
The controversy over his beard has stalled the case and even resulted in the removal of Judge Gregory Gross who was accused of being bias.
Hasan is accused of killing 13 people and injuring 32 others on post in November of 2009.
