A man who was a teenager nine years ago when he planned to attack fellow Nebraska high school students has been cleared to leave a state psychiatric hospital.

Twenty-six-year-old Joshua Magee is being transferred to a residential program and will receive outpatient care through the Community Mental Health Center.

The transfer order was approved earlier this week by Lancaster County District Court Judge Karen Flowers. She'd ordered his commitment to the Lincoln Regional Center after he was found not guilty by reason of insanity. Charges against him included attempted first-degree murder.

Magee was arrested in March 2004 at Malcolm Middle and High School after taking bomb materials and a rifle to school in his car.
