Alleged Fort Hood gunman out of ICU

FORT HOOD, TX (WKOW) -- The Army psychiatrist charged in last month's deadly shooting spree at Fort Hood has been moved from a hospital's intensive care unit to a private room.

Officials say Major Nidal Hasan remains under guard at the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio and is rehabilitating from his wounds, which left him paralyzed.

Doctors have said Hasan needs to be hospitalized for at least two more months, while he learns to care for himself. Hasan's defense lawyer says he's filed a motion to have Hasan moved to a hospital closer to his office near Fort Hood, which is about 125 miles northeast of San Antonio.

Hasan is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder in the November 5 attack. Four Wisconsin soldiers were among the victims.
