HURON, S.D. (AP) - A Lane man accused of stealing soda pop from a Huron convenience store at gunpoint could be back in court later this month after undergoing mental health treatment.

Sixty-one-year-old Martin Moeller last September pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges of first-degree robbery and commission of a felony with a firearm in the June 2014 incident.

Judge Jon Erickson in February declared Moeller incompetent to stand trial and ordered him to get treatment at a human services center in Yankton until he was deemed competent.

KOKK radio reports that Moeller was released from the center after a competency hearing Tuesday in Huron. He is tentatively scheduled for a court hearing on April 21.
