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 thirteen counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder.
