Man Unfit to be Tried For Sister's Murder Still Not Going to Trial

A Lakemoor man charged with murdering his sister in Naperville was returned to a facility for another month.

A Lakemoor man found unfit to stand trial for his sister's murder appeared in court Monday morning but was sent back to a facility for another month.

Mark Lewis, 53, allegedly beat his sister to death in her Naperville home in June 2011.

A pair of psychologists found Lewis unfit to stand trial, although one proposed that, with treatment, he could be "made fit" within a year, defense attorney Todd Lenzie said during a March 22 hearing.

During that hearing, Will County Judge Daniel Rozak ordered that Lewis be taken from the Will County jail and sent to a facility. He also ordered that Lewis be returned to court a month later to see if he had been made fit yet.

Lewis had not. Judge Rozak sent him back to the facility and scheduled another hearing for May 22.

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