The word "Committed" in this sentence?
The guy is in jail and it's in the XIX century.
After I was COMMITTED, I was removed to a room...
That COMMITTED, is it the same as "Condemned" ?

No, "committed" just means "put in the prison", in that context. If the guy was in a mental hospital, "committed" would mean "put in the mental hospital". "Condemned" is a prison sentence, just as "20 years" would be a prison sentence.

Possibly it means committed for trial and remanded in custody.

Hmmmm, it could be that he was committed over to the care of the jailor. I've never heard committed as a synonym for condemned or even convicted.
