DeKalb murder suspect rearrested after missing court appearance 

A DeKalb County man who failed to show up in court for an arraignment hearing in his murder case is back behind bars, authorities said.

Adonis Lewis, 18, was arrested Monday, the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. 

The Decatur teenager is charged with malice murder, three counts of felony murder, armed robbery, aggravated assault, conspiracy to violate the Georgia Controlled Substances Act and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, a sheriff’s office spokeswoman said. 

Lewis was one of three people charged last year in the murder of Tre Griffin, who was killed during a November 2017 armed robbery in Stone Mountain, authorities said previously.

DeKalb court records show Lewis was released from jail last August after posting a $90,000 bond, but he did not return to court for his March 5 arraignment.
