Detroit woman sentenced in husband’s fatal shooting

The Detroit News

Detroit — A Detroit woman convicted in the slaying of her husband and wounding of her 8-year-old daughter has been sentenced in the case.

Jacqueline Lewis was sentenced Tuesday to 100 months to 15 years on a manslaughter charge, six to 10 years on two counts of assault with intent to do great bodily harm and two years consecutive for a felony firearm charge.

She was found guilty last month in the shooting death of her husband, Cornell Lewis, at their home in the 18200 block of Fenton around 5:20 p.m. Feb. 2.

Lewis had been originally charged with premeditated murder, two counts of assault with intent to murder, two counts of assault with intent to murder and felonious assault.

The woman's 8-year-old daughter received what appeared then to be a superficial injury to the left leg in the shooting. The couple's 11-year-old son also jumped from a window in the home during the incident. He was not physically harmed.

The couple had argued shortly before the shooting over another woman the husband was allegedly seeing, according to police.
