DENVER (CBS4)– The man accused of kidnapping an 8-year-old girl in Denver last summer has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.

Bret Lee Thompson is charged with kidnapping and sexual assault. Prosecutors say he kidnapped a girl who was playing with a friend in an alley behind South Raleigh Street on June 2, 2011. She was found 90 minutes later at a gas station on federal.

After a nationwide manhunt, police arrested Thompson, 28, sleeping in his van in New Jersey.

Thompson made the plea Friday afternoon.

His plea means Thompson will return to the Colorado Mental Health Institute in Pueblo for evaluation.

Thompson is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 20 for a status hearing.

Thompson’s foster mother is also involved in the case. Sylvia Luckett pleaded guilty to perjury last month.

She was originally charged with being an accessory to a crime. Prosecutors accused her of lying to police to help Thompson flee as police investigated him in connection with the assault.

Luckett is scheduled to be sentenced June 28.
