Man Charged With Naperville Sister-Kill Found Psychologically Unfit

A Lakemoor man charged with murdering his sister in her Naperville home was found unfit to stand trial.

A Lakemoor man jailed the last year and a half on charges he beat his sister to death in her Naperville home was found unfit to stand trial for her murder.

Mark Lewis, 53, asked Will County Judge Daniel Rozak for permission to "say something" after the judge found him psychologically unfit during a Friday morning hearing. Rozak refused him.

Lewis' 59-year-old sister, Cathleen Lewis, was found slain in her Worthington Drive residence in June 2011. Mark Lewis was charged with murder, home invasion and residential burglary in connection with her death. He was before he was transported to the Will County jail to await trial.

Mark Lewis also faces identity theft charges for allegedly using his mother's identification to cash $2,000 worth of checks a month and a day after his sister was slain.

Mark Lewis refused to cooperate with at least one of the two psychologists charged with evaluating him, according to a report cited during Friday's hearing.

Both of the psychologists found Mark Lewis unfit, but one proposed that, with treatment, he could be "made fit" within a year, said defense attorney Todd Lenzie.

Rozak ordered that Mark Lewis be transferred from the county jail to the custody the Illinois Department of Human Services. The judge also scheduled an April 22 hearing to re-address Mark Lewis' psychiatric state.
