Lynn break-in suspect seeks forgiveness


A judge has ordered a mental health evaluation for a Lynn man who police say broke into a home, threatened to kill the residents, then broke down and begged for forgiveness when he learned that one was a minister. The evaluation was ordered at the arraignment for Jose Reyes, 56. Not guilty pleas were entered on his behalf to multiple charges. April Leone, a minister at Community Tabernacle of Deliverance, was one victim of the break-in Saturday. Leone told The Daily Item that Reyes demanded drugs and alcohol. When she showed him her certificate of ordination, he slid down the wall to the floor and started crying.
