What is the legal process for someone to be found not guilty

What is the legal process for someone to be found not guilty except for reason of insanity? Is this something that has to be determined in trial or is it something that can be settled pretrial, say in a plea bargain, if there is enough evidence to substantiate the person was indeed insane or not mentally competent at the time of the incident? I live in Oregon and the charges are murder, manslaughter 1, and assault 1. I would greatly appreciate any info you could share with me.

Neighbor adjacent to me has hired someone to fix his

Neighbor adjacent to me has hired someone to fix his backyard shed. Started with mounting a tarp to protect shed from rain. Problem is, the fellow the neighbor hired climbed up my fence and walked around on my backyard shed—totally without my consent. Complication: neighbor has social ties to gangsters in the neighborhood, doesn't feel it necessary to get my consent, doesn't even do the work with a City work permit, and will even socially talk about me as if I'm some sort of complainer that doesn't deserve to be receive any attention. And he's very good at composing a negative image of someone in the minds of others.I've attempted to rationalize with this neighbor, even inviting him to talk with a lawyer I'd hired. And he did, once. This lawyer pointed out that he's threatened me twice during our conversation. Neighbor never called the lawyer back.Recently, I filed statements with the local police—once for harassment and another for the guy he hired fastening the tarp onto my side of the property by about a foot. My concern is simply that he's up there walking on my shed and climbing my fence—all of which are on my property. The liability issues stand out in the sense that I haven't even been able to see his insurance or license—none of which he probably has.While my next step is to file a complaint with the City (Department of Inspection, DBI), the police really frowned on me with my choice not to confront neither the neighbor nor the so-called roofer. He said he would be by this weekend to actually fix the shed and seemed to suggest he'd be done before Monday when a DBI inspector might potentially come by. Given what the police told me, what are my options if I do confront the roofer over the weekend? Given the animosity of my neighbor (and he actually has a 2nd degree murder charge on his record), at worst, would I be in the right to say stand in the roofer's way if he attempts to climb on my fence/she again? What about pushing him away, such as if he tries to push me out of his way? Or what about out-right hitting him with a hammer or something to stop him?I already told the police that I am the type of person who walks away unless I'm unable too. But if a worst-case scenario arises, what can I do? I mean must I walk away and report the incident? Or can I physically defend my property from being trespassed upon by the roofer, even if he doesn't attempt to hit me first?Just want to know the range of things I can and can't do.
