Murder suspect arrested after crashing into police car during chase


OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – A suspect in a murder case has been taken into custody following a police chase early Monday morning.

Around 1 a.m. on Monday, dispatchers with the Oklahoma City Police Department received a 911 call about gunshots being heard near S.W. 15th St. and Czech Hall Rd.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found a woman had been shot to death.

The victim has since been identified as 36-year-old Emilia Koteen.

Investigators learned that Kotten was shot and killed in her own driveway after the alleged suspect, 18-year-old Javier Lewis, had fired shots at another family member.
