FORT HOOD, Texas, Sept. 26 (UPI) -- Nidal Hasan, the U.S. Army major accused of killing 13 people at Fort Hood in Texas, was released from a hospital Wednesday after a brief stay.
Hasan was admitted Monday for undisclosed reasons and listed in "good" condition during his stay at a central Texas hospital. He was paralyzed from the chest down after being shot during the deadly 2009 attack at the Texas military base, the Killeen Daily Herald reported.
Hasan was returned to the Texas jail where he's being detained as he awaits trial.
Hasan, who authorities say holds radical Islamist views, could be sentenced to death if convicted for the base shootings that took place a month before he was to be deployed to Afghanistan and left 13 dead and wounded 32 more.
