Bell County, tx — Trial resumes Tuesday for a Chicago man who is charged with the February 2011 shooting death of a Killeen man.
Mario Lamont Lewis is charged with murdering Lynn Wilford, of Killeen, at an apartment building in the 200 block of East Garrison Avenue. Police found the body just before 7 a.m. on February 19, 2011. Wilford was killed after a shooting spree, in which Lewis reportedly shot multiple shots as Wilford attempted to escape.
Lewis was on the run for more than two months before he was arrested in April by the U.S. Marshal's Task Force in Chicago on the warrant issued through Killeen.
