The Houghton man charged with the murder of 84-year-old Geraldine Fouts at the Douglass House Apartments late September has been ruled incompetent to stand trial.
Timothy Cadeau was facing two charges of one count of home invasion and one count of homicide.
The 29 year old appeared in Houghton County District Court Thursday afternoon where he was deemed incompetent to stand trial.
This means his case will not go forward and Cadeau will be sent to a forensics center for treatment.
Should there be a possibility of competency in the future, the case could move forward; however, the case will remain closed until further assessments have been completed.
