HAGERSTOWN -- A mental health examination has been requested for a Hagerstown man charged with robbing the same bank twice in March.
David Courtney Zeller, 57, filed a plea of not criminally responsible and competent to stand trial, according to court documents filed earlier this month by Assistant Public Defender Carl F. Creeden. A motions hearing for Zeller scheduled Thursday in Washington County Circuit Court was continued, Assistant State's Attorney Brett Wilson said.
Creeden requested that Zeller receive a mental health evaluation to determine if he is competent to stand trial or whether he was criminally responsible at the time of the alleged offenses, court records show.
Zeller, who was living at the Dagmar Hotel, 50 Summit Ave., is charged with robbing the Sovereign Bank branch at 100 W. Washington St. on March 9 and 23, according to the applications for statement of charges filed by the Hagerstown Police Department.
