FORT HOOD SHOOTING
Fort Hood suspect moved from hospital to Texas jail
BELTON, Texas (AP) - The Army psychiatrist charged in the deadly
Fort Hood shootings has been moved from a San Antonio military
hospital to the Bell County Jail near the post.
Maj. Nidal Hasan's attorney, John Galligan, told The Associated
Press that a Fort Hood official confirms Hasan was airlifted to the
jail. Galligan was concerned that authorities did not notify him of
the transfer in advance -- as promised.
One of Hasan's relatives visited him last night at Brooke Army
Online records list Hasan as a Bell County Jail inmate today.
Hasan had been at the military hospital since shortly after the
Nov. 5 attacks, which left him paralyzed after civilian police shot
him to stop the rampage.
He's charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts
of attempted premeditated murder. Hasan faces a hearing, similar to
a grand jury proceeding, as early as July 1.
