Anthony Lewis, 17, has been indicted for the murder of Leslie Baker, the former director of marketing at the Texas Health Center for Diagnostics and Surgery who was 59 at the time of her death.

He is indicted on charges including aggravated robbery, capital murder and evading arrest according to NBC DFW. Lewis is currently being held at the Dallas County Jail on a $1,525,000 bond.

Baker was shot and killed on Memorial Day in the 6100 block of Royalton Drive. Shot in her car, Lewis allegedly attempted to carjack her. Two others were involved in the crime, Antony Taylor and Deng Ajack.

Because Lewis turned 17 in June, he will be tried as an adult, even though the crime took place when he was only 16 years old.

Baker volunteered with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and is survived by her husband and two children.

“I had 30 beautiful, wonderful years,” her husband, Robert Baker, said to the Dallas Morning News in June. “I was the most blessed man to be married to Leslie Squair Baker. She is everything you have read. She cared about people. She didn’t care where they came from.”
