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.
