Lucene search with accented characters

I have a situation where I have two folders with almost the same name, except for the accent mark.

Hernández-Monrreal, Juan Gabriel
Hernandez-Monrreal, Juan Gabriel

I am trying to search for folders using the following query:
+@cm\:name:"cm:Hernández-Monrreal_x002c__x0020_Juan_x0020_Gabriel" +TYPE:"cm:folder" +PATH:"/app:company_home/st:sites/cm:CLCHURCHLIFE/cm:documentLibrary/cm:G_x0020_-_x0020_H/cm:H/*"

I would expect to just get back the folder with exact match including the accent mark, but I get back both the folders, with and without the accent mark.  It seems lucene will just ignore the accent mark and return matches based on the letters.

Is there a way to make lucene do a search with the accent marks?
