Managed account is duplicate

When updated farm account with local user, I found account is duplicated.
When tried to remove this user found error:

Item has already been added. Key in dictionary.. How do I clean up service account?

I solved solution by using powershell:
Remove-SPManagedAccount -Identity DOMAIN\ServiceAcct

Register new managed account local user

When tried to register local account user I faced the following error:
The specified user 'accountname' is a local account. Local accounts should only be used in stand alone mode.
I found solution using powershell:
type $cred = Get-Credential
When prompted enter an account and password (here you can type in a local account)
type New-SPManagedAccount -Credential $cred
After finished the account is added.
