An attorney says the Army psychiatrist charged in the worst mass shooting on a U.S. military base will soon be moved to a county jail near Fort Hood after four months in a military hospital.

Defense attorney John Galligan says Maj. Nidal Hasan could be moved this week.

Bell County Jail administrator Bob Patterson says Hasan will be housed in a cell at the medical unit.

Patterson said Monday the facility is prepared to handle inmates with special medical needs.

Hasan was taken to a San Antonio military hospital shortly after the Nov. 5 Fort Hood shootings. Civilian police officers shot him during the attack, leaving him paralyzed below the chest.

Hasan faces 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder.
