(ABC News)  U.S. Marshals have moved the Boston Marathon bombing suspect from his hospital room to a federal prison west of Boston, where he will receive medical care while he awaits trial for the twin blasts that killed three and wounded more than 250.

According to ABC News:

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who had been listed in fair condition at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, was transported overnight to the Federal Medical Center Devens, a federal prison facility that offers treatment to inmates requiring specialized or long-term medical care. Tsarnaev had wounds to his head, neck, legs, and hands that he is believed to have sustained during a chase and shootout with police last week.

Prior to the move, he had been recovering in a sparely appointed hospital room with no television, in the same facility as a number of his alleged victims, law enforcement sources told ABC News.
