CHICKASHA —

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.
