He’s facing first-degree murder and attempted murder charges after police say he opened fire on a vehicle and killed Jlynn Beason.
The incident occurred September 20th in Fort Dodge.
Police say the bullets were intended for Beason’s brother, as he and Lewil had an altercation prior to the shooting.
