The Woodbury teen accused of a murder plot earlier this month was released to his family until his next court appearance.
Andrew Busskohl appeared in court Thursday, Aug. 14 after a psychiatric evaluation was completed following his Aug. 7 arrest.
Busskohl, 19, was required to undergo psychiatric evaluation after he posted bail shortly after his arrest.
He was charged with counts of first-degree attempted burglary and first-degree aggravated harassment after Woodbury police discovered he had attempted to break into a home on the 3800 block of Oxford Drive.
According to a criminal complaint, Busskohl told a friend he had a plan to murder a person at random.
In a search of Busskohl’s vehicle, police found evidence that they believed pointed to his plan to target a man who lived at the residence he admitted he attempted to break into.
After his psychiatric evaluation, Busskohl was ordered by a judge to be released to his mother and is to remain at home unless it is for a medical or psychological appointment.
He is being monitored daily by community corrections, said Washington County assistant attorney Susan Harris.
Busskohl’s next hearing is set for Sept. 3.
