Doctors Clear Murder Suspect for Transfer 

Multi-murder suspect Christian Nielsen might soon be swapping a jail cell for accommodations at a psychiatric hospital.

Cumberland County Jail officials say that doctors cleared Nielsen Monday morning for transfer to the Riverview Psychiatric facility in Augusta.

Jail officials won a court order to force feed Nielsen who had lost more than fifty pounds since going to jail to put his weight at just over one hundred pounds.

They didn’t have to force feed him though, Nielsen began eating again.

He’s accused of murdering four people at a bed and breakfast in Oxford County over last Labor Day weekend.
