BISMARCK, N.D. -- A midsummer trial has been scheduled for an Idaho man accused of driving a kidnapped woman's car to North Dakota and pulling a gun on a trucker there.

Mitchell Walck, 57, has pleaded not guilty to four felonies, including terrorizing.

Authorities allege he shot at an Idaho state trooper last Nov. 30, kidnapped a woman from her Rathdrum, Idaho, home a day later, released her the next day in Glendive, Mont., then drove to Bismarck and threatened a trucker whose semitrailer sleeper cab he had entered.

The Bismarck Tribune reports Walck is to stand trial in Bismarck July 23-24 on the North Dakota charges.

Walck has undergone a mental health evaluation at the State Hospital in Jamestown at the request of his defense attorney. Results have not been disclosed.
