The accused is to return to court on April 28.

A psychiatric evaluation has been ordered by the St Catherine Parish Court for the man accused of breaking into and robbing the apartment of dancehall entertainer KipRich.

Kemar Francis, who is charged with housebreaking and larceny, was further remanded until April 28 by Parish Court Judge Carol Hughes when the case will again be mentioned.

The judge made the order following submissions from Francis’ attorney Kammesha Harrison.

Allegations are that on March 11 Francis broke into and entered the premises and stole jewellery, cash in local and foreign currencies and other items.

The matter was reported to the police and investigation was launched.

The items were later recovered in downtown Kingston.

The accused was subsequently held and later charged.
