Today detectives presented a case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office for filing consideration in the murder of Alicia Faith Todd.

On June 24, 2015, at approximately 1:13 a.m., victim Todd was found deceased in an alley in the 1100 block of E. 21st Street.

As patrol officers and homicide detectives worked the crime scene, they found little evidence and no witnesses to the murder. 

Through the course of their investigation, detectives contacted family and friends to recreate the last few days of Todd’s life for any clues or leads that may assist them in finding the person(s) responsible for her death. They determined she was in a domestic relationship with the defendant and they were together the night of the murder. 

The defendant is identified as Tremaine Lewis, a 24 year old, resident of Long Beach. He was arrested on Thursday February 18, 2016. 

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office filed one count of murder with a gun enhancement against Lewis and he is being held on $2,000,000.00 bail at the Long Beach City Jail. He will be arraigned today at 1:30 p.m. in Long Beach Superior Court.   

The investigation remains ongoing. Anyone with information regarding the murder is urged to call Homicide Detectives Teryl Hubert, Scott Lasch, and Michael Hubbard at (562) 570-7244. Anyone wishing to remain anonymous may call 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or text TIPLA plus your tip to 274637 (CRIMES), or visit http://www.lacrimestoppers.org/.
