‘Heavenly’ flower shop owner, 38, who is a ‘true angel’ is charged with murdering his ex-girlfriend
A “true angel” who saved the life of a woman whose heart had been broken by his death is facing murder charges.
Rosewood Flower Shop owner David J. Lewis, 38 was charged with murder after a jury found him guilty of the death of 37-year-old Stephanie Lillie Williams on February 4, 2017, at a home in the town of Rosewood, Oregon.
Williams had been dating Lewis for five years and he had been divorced from his wife, Denise Williams, for two years.
Lewis’ ex-wife was a police officer, but he never showed her any affection.
He left her in June 2016 when she went into a coma.
The day after Williams’ death, she called police and told them that Lewis had died in his bed, but the officer could not find him.
Lewis had previously been arrested on two felony charges of burglary and larceny and was released on bond.
In November 2017, he was arrested and charged with attempted murder and two felony counts of kidnapping.
On April 10, 2018, a jury convicted him on those charges.
He is scheduled to be sentenced in October.
Lewis faces up to life in prison for the murders of Williams and Lillio Williams, who was found dead in a bed in a home on February 19, 2017.
He also faces the charges of first-degree kidnapping and first-offense robbery.
