Brockton Man Sentenced To Over 17 years For Murder

A 51-year-old Brockton man who stabbed and killed a 21-year-old man on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation was sentenced to more than 17 years in federal prison, Friday, Sept. 12.
Great Falls United States District Court Judge Brian Morris sentenced David Lewis, 51, to 210 months in prison, followed by a term of five years supervised release.
Lewis previously pleaded guilty to second degree murder. In an offer of proof filed by the government, the government stated that if the case had proceeded to trial, it would have proven that Lewis stabbed the victim approximately 19 times in the back and arm following an alleged argument between them at Lewis’ house in Brockton.
The case came to law enforcement’s attention after the victim was reported missing by his family in January. During the search for the victim, Lewis pretended as if he did not know where the victim was and even pretended to help search for him. Upon further inquiry from law enforcement, Lewis eventually confessed that he had stabbed and killed the victim, and that the victim’s body was still in his home.
Because there is no parole in the federal system, Lewis will have to serve at least 85 percent of his sentence before he is released from prison.
Fort Peck Tribes Department of Law and Justice criminal investigators and the Federal Bureau of Investigation investigated the case.
