Howard Wayne Lewis Charged in Double-Homicide

Published on October 10, 2013 by Larry Crippen

An arrest has been made in the July 2013 murders of 55-year-old Shanta Faye Crawford and 18-month-old Aiyden Benjamin Lewis.

The father of the child, Dallas resident Howard Wayne Lewis, has been charged in the double-homicide.

Walker County Sheriff Clint McRae held a press conference Wednesday afternoon . . . .


The autopsy showed that Shanta Faye Crawford was beaten to death with a blunt object .  Eighteen-month-old Aiyden Lewis died of asphyxiation.

The child had been the center of a custody battle between his parents.  Lewis had been ordered to pay child support.  He had been living with his fiance in Dallas.  He was arrested at the Walker County Courthouse following his being there because of a grand jury subpoena.  More DNA lab results are expected.
