Soldier Kills Pregnant Wife Days Before Due Date

Fort Bragg Soldier Kills Wife

During a domestic dispute, a Fort Bragg soldier shot his wife to death before turning the gun on himself, all in front of their 3-year-old daughter.

According to the Fayetteville Police Department, Staff Sgt. Keith Lewis, a 31-year-old member of the Army Special Operations Command stationed at Fort Bragg, shot his 34-year-old wife, Sarah Lewis. Sarah had four children and was due to give birth to another on Christmas day.

Keith died at a local hospital later on due to the self-inflicted gunshot wound. The couple’s 3-year-old, who witnessed the horrible incident, was unharmed. The couple’s unborn baby, who was going to be named Isabella, died.

“It’s a complete shock. It’s like a horror movie,” Tammy De Mirza, Sarah Lewis’ aunt, told WRAL. “She had a smile that would light up the room, I can’t explain it. She was vivacious and fun and lighthearted and easygoing and really head and heart to be of service.”

De Mirza also said that the 34-year-old was in the military until she gave birth to her first child and had since become a paramedic. According to De Mirza, Keith was Sarah’s second husband and had previously threatened her life multiple times. Police confirmed that officers had responded to a 2016 domestic dispute call involving Keith, but he was never charged.

Court records in Cumberland County show that Keith was charged with a misdemeanor in 2016 for pointing a gun at his wife. However, Sarah requested that the charges be dismissed.

Emilia River, the couple’s neighbor, heard gunshots coming from the Lewis house. She called police.

“We heard the gunshots. Immediately [my boyfriend] was like, ‘You know someone just died. You don’t shoot that many gunshots and not try to kill somebody,'” River said.

When police arrived at the scene, they found Sarah Lewis with multiple gunshot wounds.

The couple’s three-year-old daughter is staying with other family members. It wasn’t immediately clear where the other children were staying.

  1. I wonder what happened to her first husband. I hope they do a DNA on the the baby. If SSG Lewis was deployed and came back many time for SOG soldiers, I think a deep dive has to looked at. (I am a Retired US Army Soldier who served with SF and 82nd)

    1. Not really sure why you would make the assumption to have an DNA test on the baby. The soldier had no right to kill her and the baby, regardless!

  2. What in the hell is going on with Fort Bragg and this mayhem going in our Military Station. I come from a Military background and this terrible. What are the higher ups doing, they are not taking their position seriously and not looking out for their fellow country men/women just looking out themselves. I say bring in new people that our worthy of our country and we stand for

  3. It is a terribly sad story, but unfortunately not an uncommon story. I pray to God that the three year old child who witnessed the entire event will not be traumatized for the rest of her life, but will receive the best possible psychological
    care and counselling available, in order to avoid
    a lifelong mental trauma because of what she had to witness!

  4. WHY NO PHOTO OF THE HUSBAND !!! I KNOW WHY !!! ALSO WHERE ARE THE OTHER KIDS ? WITH THE EX-HUSBAND !!! THAT SHOULD TELL YOU ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW !!!

  5. C’mon Randall Craig, what if the other children WERE with the ex-husband. Does the ex NOT have a right to see and be with his kids? How does THAT explain anything? Long and short…even if the woman IS carrying someone’s else child, does that mean that she should be murdered? NO!!! It might mean she should be divorced, but NOT murdered. There’s a lot more to this story, but JUSTIFIABLE homicide IS NOT part of the story.
