A man accused of breaking into a home in the Kennedy compound on Cape Cod and telling authorities he was looking for singer Katy Perry has been ordered held for a mental health evaluation.

Fifty-three-year-old James Lacroix appeared in Barnstable Superior Court on Wednesday on a breaking and entering charge. A not guilty plea was entered for him but a formal arraignment was delayed until Aug. 13.
