Officials at the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, say Nidal Hasan has arrived to begin his incarceration on the prison’s death row.
A brief statement from the Army on Friday afternoon provided little detail about his arrival. The major, convicted for the premeditated murder of 13 troops and civilians and the attempted murder of 32, was sentenced to death Aug. 28.
The death penalty sentence triggered an automatic appeal to the U.S. Army Criminal Court of Appeals and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces.
The U.S. Disciplinary Barracks is the military’s only maximum-security prison and houses its only death row.
