ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 4 (UPI) -- Police in Orlando, Fla., have arrested a man for allegedly attacking a dead body in an open casket at a local church.

Orlando police alleged that Timothy Cleary entered Harvest Baptist Church during a funeral and proceeded to punch and attack the body inside the displayed casket, Florida's WKMG-TV, Orlando, reported Sunday.

Police arrested Cleary immediately after the alleged attack, for which no motive is known, and Saturday he appeared before an Orlando judge.

While that judge set Cleary's bond at $350, he also ordered the suspect to undergo a complete mental evaluation before he faces another hearing on various criminal charges, WKMG-TV said.
