Share this post

In Lake County court, a Gary man has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole in the death of a Griffith woman in April 2011. Last month, a jury convicted 40-year-old Robert Lewis the third of charges that included murder and murder during the perpetration of criminal deviate conduct. Authorities say 37-year-old Jennifer Kocsis, a former teacher in Hammond and Whiting, agreed to give Lewis a ride from a restaurant. Her body was found by schoolchildren the next morning behind the former Riley Elementary School building at 43rd and Ohio Street in Gary.
