Wife of murder victim in new appeal for help
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.
