The man accused in the gruesome stabbing of five people in a Denver bar has been found guilty of multiple counts of murder, robbery, attempted robbery and arson.
Jurors will now begin the next phase of Dexter Lewis’ trial, to determine whether he will face the death penalty for his crimes.
Prosecutors say the murders were part of a robbery at Fero’s Bar and Grill that netted Lewis and two cohorts a paltry $170.
On October 17, 2012, a Glendale police officer saw smoke coming from the bar on South Colorado Boulevard. He called firefighters.
The firefighters retrieved five victims from the burning building. All five were covered with blood.
The Coroner determined the victims had all been stabbed multiple times.
Prosecutors say three men went to the bar with Lewis. Brothers Joseph and Lynell Hill pleaded guilty under deals with prosecutors. The fourth, Demarea Harris, a confidential federal informant wasn't charged.
Harris and Lynell Hill say Lewis stabbed all five people. Joseph Hill initially agreed to testify against Lewis, but later refused.
Lewis allegedly told his cellmate that he had to kill everyone in the bar because they'd seen his face as he killed the first victim.
