Timothy Cadeau, 29, of Houghton, was arraigned in 97th District Court in Houghton Monday. He is accused of the Saturday murder of Geraldine Fouts in Houghton. At his arraignment, he was ordered to undergo an evaluation to determine if he is mentally competent.

Cadeau began his arraignment from the Houghton County Jail video videoconference. Judge Mark Wisti moved the hearing to the courtroom after Cadeau did not indicate he could understand Wisti's questions. Cadeau remained unresponsive once in the courtroom.

Officers accompanying Cadeau said he has had mental health issues.

Wisti ordered Cadeau to undergo evaluation. No preliminary hearing has been scheduled.

Cadeau is charged with homicide - open murder, a felony punishable by life in prison, and first-degree home invasion, a 20-year felony.

He is lodged in the Houghton County Jail on $1 million bail.
