Arraignment Set For Monterey Murder Suspect

A November 16th arraignment in Putnam County Criminal Court has been set for a Monterey man, arrested Tuesday after being indicted on charges of second degree murder.  Authorities say 35-year-old Christopher Rodger Lewis of Jim Garrett Road is accused of being responsible for the death of his wife,  Amy Mayberry Lewis, in August of this year.  She had reportedly been found dead by Christopher Lewis, who then went to his mother's home, and authorities say it was his mother who called 911. An autopsy was performed, and while authorities have not released the details of what that autopsy showed, they did present evidence to the grand jury, which issued an indictment.  Lewis reportedly turned himself in upon learning of the indictment.
