It took a Caddo Parish jury less than an hour to convict a Bossier City of murdering a Shreveport businessman.
Cameron Lewis, and an accomplice, Amanda Williams of Shreveport, were bot indicted on charges of second-degree murder in the death of Bryan Savage.
Lead investigators took the stand during Cameron's trial, describing key evidence including crime scene photographs, autopsy pictures and surveillance video of Lewis and Williams, captured in a parking lot near the Sam’s Town Hotel and Casino shortly following the alleged crime.
Jurors also watched a video of Lewis talking to police in the back seat of a Shreveport police car, after he was taken into custody.
It happened in February 2016. Shreveport police were called regarding a garage fire, and Shreveport firefighters rushed to the home on Woolworth Road in southwest Shreveport. Behind the residence, a gruesome discovery, the home’s owner, 55-year-old Savage lay dead. Investigators determined Savage suffered blunt force trauma and at least one gunshot would before his home was set on fire, following a burglary.
Lewis admitted to burglarizing Savage's home and setting it on fire but denied pulling the trigger.
He now faces a life sentence in prison.
Lewis trial on second-degree murder charges is scheduled to being February 5, 2017.
