Jail officials confirmed Amy Bishop Anderson is no longer in the Metro Jail and will spend her first night in Tutwiler Prison.
She was taken from the Metro Jail around 1 p.m. by Madison County deputies and a county transport officer.
Assistant Jail Administrator Lt. Steven Setzer said her routine was changed last night, and she was very upset. She wasn't in her usual cell, but was in a smaller cell in a high traffic area.
He said they put her in the "booking cell" after she was sentenced for security observation, where someone checked on her every 15 minutes. It was not suicide watch, and she was allowed to have all her personal effects.
Setzer said Bishop-Anderson left the building on Tuesday without "pitching a fit," which is unusual for her. He described her typical behavior as animated, demanding, and accustomed to getting her own way.
Setzer said being transported this quickly is not typical but not unusual. The sheriff called Tutwiler, and they had a bed available.
This comes less than 24 hours after she was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for the shootings at the UAH campus in February of 2010. Bishop-Anderson shot six people, killing three. She pleaded guilty to the charges and had a mini-trial Monday in Madison County.
Amy Bishop-Anderson will spend the rest of her life inside Tutwiler prison.
Alabama has three women's facilities, but Department of Corrections officials said she'll serve her time in Tutwiler in Wetumpka.
Tutwiler houses several high profile female inmates.
Department of Corrections officials said it typically takes 30 days for an inmate to transfer to a state prison.
However, with high profile cases, the sheriff is able to expedite the process.
They said Bishop-Anderson will spend an undetermined amount of time in segregation. This is to help the prisoner adjust.
On a side note, cameras and interviews with inmates are no longer allowed inside Alabama prisons.
