The officer charged in the Fort Hood massacre is being processed to move to the Bell County Jail as he faces a June 1 hearing at the post.

Defense attorney John Galligan says doctors at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio gave Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan a "discharge physical" Wednesday evening.

Hasan was not included Thursday in an online listing of inmates in the jail, located about 15 miles from the central Texas post.

Sheriff's Deputy Felix Gutierrez told The Associated Press that he
could not give out any information.

Galligan says the 183-day jail contract to house Hasan began
Wednesday. Hasan was paralyzed from the chest down after civilian
police shot him to stop the Nov. 5 rampage.

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