Mesa County sheriff's deputies flew with Blagg from Grand Junction to Denver Wednesday. He was admitted into the Denver Reception and Diagnostic Center.
A jury convicted the 41-year-old Blagg of first-degree murder last week in the November 2001 death of his wife, Jennifer.
Michael Blagg will undergo several evaluations and interviews before officials decide where he'll be imprisoned.
Inmates are usually assigned to a prison within 30 days of arriving at the center in Denver.
