SELLERSBURG, Ind. (WAVE) - A Clark County man is facing multiple charges after investigators say he shot and killed his wife inside their home.

Deputies responded to a home in the 11000 block of Forrest Hill Circle in Sellersburg on a report that a suspect shot his wife and fled, according to Clark County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Scottie Maples. When they arrived, Maples said they found Elizabeth “Lizzie” Bennett Lewis dead inside the home with multiple gunshot wounds.

The suspect, Mac Lewis, is charged with murder, attempted murder, and criminal recklessness with a firearm.

The investigation revealed that the victim’s 11-year-old daughter and her 10-year-old friend were inside the home and were near Lewis when the shooting happened. Maples said the suspect is not the biological father of the 11-year-old.

Maples said Elizabeth Lewis’ daughter called 911 while Lewis was allegedly shooting his gun throughout the house, killing her mother.

Multiple gunshots were found throughout several rooms and areas in the home, Maples said.

Sellersburg Police offers were able to find Mac Lewis driving on State Road 60. Lewis was taken into custody during a traffic stop without incident.

Lewis appeared in court on Monday and is being held without bond.
