Bell County Jail to get Hasan

By Guillermo Contreras - Express-News 
It's going to cost the Army about $207,000 to house the Fort Hood shooting suspect, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, in the Bell County Jail until September, according to contract documents released this week.

Bell County Commissioners Court finalized a contract modification last week that allows the military to transfer Hasan from Brooke Army Medical Center to the jail in Belton, about 20 miles east of Fort Hood.

Bell County Sheriff Dan Smith said no notice will be given of Hasan's move until he is already at the jail.
