Travis Keiler heads to mental institution after insanity plea deal for standoff

SHAWANO, WI (WTAQ) - A northeast Wisconsin man has been committed to a mental institution for 26-and-a-half years, after he held a McDonald's manager hostage in Wittenberg.

29-year-old Travis Keiler of Gillett struck a plea deal that found him not guilty by insanity on two felony charges in Shawano County. Two misdemeanors were dropped.

Keiler surrendered after a two-hour long standoff April 22nd at a combined McDonald's and Shell gas station off Highway 29. Keiler told officers he had just quit a job, and was driving around depressed with a stolen gun before stopping in Wittenberg.

Officials earlier said that Keiler wanted to get into a confrontation with police. He gave others in the building a chance to leave before holding the manager hostage -- and one employee told customers who were outside pumping gas to leave.

No one was hurt.
