Englewood teen sentenced for chef's murder

CENTENNIAL - An Englewood teenager who pleaded guilty to killing a Denver chef has been given a 21-year suspended prison sentence, which he will not have to serve if he completes seven years in the Department of Corrections' youth offender system.

Seventeen-year-old Louis Lara-Macias was sentenced Thursday as part of a plea agreement. Lara-Macias pleaded guilty in October to Second Degree Murder for the shooting death of 33-year-old Nicholas Lewis.

 According to a release from the District Attorney's Office for the 18th Judicial District, 33-year-old Nicholas Lewis was shot three times in the 3000 block of South Acoma St in October 2016. He was later pronounced dead at a hospital.

Lewis had been the chef at Blackbird Public House in Denver. 

Lara-Macias and his teenage co-defendant, Raheem Vaughn Benson, were both charged as adults. Benson's case is still working its way through the legal system.
