Man pleads guilty to abuse following rape accusation



Schoolfield said Lewis' wife told him Lewis had threatened to kill her, told her she wouldn't live through the day, and accused her of cheating on him.

"[Lewis' wife] stated she was pleading for her life and that [Lewis] stated he was going to kill her [that night]," he said. "[She] also stated [Lewis] was forcing himself on her…"

Lewis was arrested for rape, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, domestic abuse and kidnapping, but the state decided to dismiss those charges Wednesday.

Lewis is scheduled to be sentenced at 1:30 p.m. on June 10.
