Wife of mur­der vic­tim in new ap­peal for help

Solihull News - - FRONT PAGE -

THE wife of Soli­hull mur­der vic­tim Gio­vanni Lewis has made an emo­tional ap­peal for help in catch­ing the killer who stabbed her hus­band through the heart a year ago.

Gio­vanni was stabbed in Had­field Way, King­shurst, on Oc­to­ber 18, 2016. The 28- year- old died later in hospi­tal.

De­spite a num­ber of ap­peals and a Crimestop­pers re­ward, 20- year- old Jam­mal Chase, a key sus­pect in the mur­der in­quiry, has not yet been traced.

Gio­vanni’s wife, Dawn Lewis, said her life had been com­pletely de­stroyed as she joined po­lice in

urg­ing any­one with in­for­ma­tion about her hus­band’s killing to come for­ward.

She also pleaded with the sus­pect to “do the right thing” and hand himself in.

De­tec­tives is­sued an ap­peal last Novem­ber for help in trac­ing the then 19- year- old Chase, who is also known by the street name “A1”.

This week they re­peated the ap­peal – which in­cludes a £ 5,000 Crimestop­pers re­ward – and vowed to bring to jus­tice any­one who had been pro­tect­ing him.

Dawn mar­ried Gio­vanni in 2009 in Ja­maica and de­scribed her hus­band as her soul­mate.

“I feel alone and empty. My whole life has been taken away. It has de­stroyed me and my fam­ily,” she said.
