Indictment: Sullivan County man accused of murdering 2-month-old baby


    Nickelous Lewis (SCSO)

    A Kingsport man is accused of killing a 2-month-old baby following his indictment by a grand jury on a first degree murder charge.

    Nickelous Lee Lewis, 27, is also facing two counts of aggravated child abuse, according to court information obtained by News 5.

    Investigators were called to the home in December for the suspicious death of the child that was later ruled a homicide. The court information did not specify if the infant was Lewis' child.

    Lewis was already jailed in Sullivan County on an unrelated charge and is now being held under a $250,000 bond.
