      Man charged with homicide in suspicious Houghton death

      Timothy Cadeau, man suspected in break-in and murder case appears in court

      A 29-year-old Houghton man is facing charges of home invasion and homicide after an incident that took place over the weekend.

      Timothy Lee Cadeau was in court on Monday afternoon and is being charged with homicide and first degree home invasion. Cadeau was arrested after police discovered 84-year-old Geraldine Fouts dead in her home at the Douglass House Apartments in Houghton Saturday afternoon.

      Cadeau was arrested shortly after police arrived on scene of the alleged breaking and entering incident.

      The court has decided to perform an examination of Cadeau to see if he is competent to stand trial. It is uncertain how long an examination will take.

      Cadeau is being held in the Houghton County Jail on a one million dollar bond.
