DIXON - The man accused of a brutal attack and murder of Dixon man will use insanity as his defense.
Nathan Calvert appeared in court Tuesday morning after recently completing a mental health evaluation in the Montana State Hospital in Warm Springs.
His defense attorney says Calvert is fit to proceed, but they will use mental health as the defense in this case. Calvert is accused of killing Doug Morigeau and slitting his wife's throat in what appears to be a random attack.
Prosecutors say Calvert was high on a synthetic marijuana drug "Spice" when he attacked the couple in their Dixon home on December 6th.
Calvert's trial is scheduled for July.
