  • February 4th, 2009

    Relatives of dad booked in shaken-baby murder shocked by the news. George Lewis, 23, of 2436 Halsey St., was booked with second degree murder Tuesday night in connection with the death of his daughter Sophia Lewis, who was five-months old. Minyard said complications from brain injuries led to the infant's death, and said the injuries were consistent with shaken-baby syndrome. Charlene Fontana, Lewis' half-sister, said that she hadn't spoken to Lewis in almost four years after he lived with her briefly just before Hurricane Katrina. "He was always really good around him," Fontana said. Between bouts of sobbing, Fontana said that the last time they spoke he was very short with her and seemed angry. "He was refusing to talk to any of us," she said. Tammany Parish criminal court records show Lewis was charged with simple criminal trespassing and hit-and-run driving in 2006, but both of those cases were dismissed. She also said he's had a problem with violence in the past. "George has had problems since early childhood," Hunt said. She said Lewis fled her home once she attempted to call deputies.
