St. Johnsbury, Vermont - June 4, 2011

A St. Johnsbury man accused of nearly beating a furnace repairman to death, has been committed to the state Department of Mental Health for at least three months.

Back in February, police say 21-year-old Evan Rapoza beat and strangled 50-year-old Michael Kuligoski as he worked in the basement of his home.

Psychiatric evaluations found Rapoza was insane during the attack.

Kuligoski worked at Fred's Propane in Lyndonville.

The company says he is in a rehabilitation facility in Massachusetts.
