Boston bombing suspect transferred from hospital

Posted: Updated:

Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, has been transferred from a hospital in Boston to a medical prison facility, according to U.S. Marshals.

Tsarnaev suffered gunshot wounds to the neck and torso and was being treated at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

Dzhohkar is now at FMC Devens in Ft. Devens in central Massachusetts and approximately 40 miles west of Boston.

The facility, on the decommissioned Fort Devens U.S. Army base, treats federal prisoners and detainees who require specialized long-term medical or mental health care.

He reportedly has been unable to speak due to the wound to the neck.

On Monday, Tsarnaev stopped cooperating with FBI investigators after a judge and US Attorney read him his Miranda rights following 16 hours of interrogations.

He is accused of setting off pressure cooker bombs with his brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, on April 15.

The elder Tsarnaev was killed in a police shoot out. In n all-day manhunt, Dzhohkar was captured in a boat where he was hiding. The boat was parked in the rear yard of a house in Watertown, Mass.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
