A Davison County judge yesterday ruled that statements a man accused of murder made to police will be included as evidence in the case. A suppression motion requested by the attorneys of 50-year old Anthony Lewis was denied by Judge Chris Giles (jiles). Lewis is accused of stabbing Quinn Schleuning (sh-loon-ing) at Lewis’s apartment in downtown Mitchell in August of 2017. During initial questioning after the incident by police, Lewis did say “I get a lawyer.” Once a request is made for a lawyer, law enforcement interrogation must cease. However, Judge Giles ruled that the statement made by Lewis was not a clear request for a lawyer. Lewis also later actively engaged a different detective, discussed the case with him, and waived his Miranda rights by signing a waiver form. Lewis is charged with first and second-degree murder and could face life in prison if convicted. A jury trial is expected to take place later this year.
