Her daughter was found deceased by fire and police personnel when they arrived at Lewis’ Fairborn home Aug. 24, 2012.
Fairborn Police Sgt. Paul Hicks said Lewis rolled over and accidentally suffocated the infant. She discovered the baby was unconscious when she woke up, he said.
In 911 recordings from that day, Lewis can be heard telling a dispatcher that she rolled over on the infant in her sleep.
“I need to be reported,” she said. “My baby’s body is already bruising.” She also tells the dispatcher that the baby was born three weeks premature.
Lewis also has a 2-year-old son who is in the custody of family members.
