Pathologist: Carly Lewis stabbed to death

TRAVERSE CITY — Carly Lewis suffered 10 stab wounds, one of which -- a 4.5”-deep wound to her left upper chest -- killed her, a forensic pathologist testified today at the preliminary examination for her accused slayer, Robert Jensen Schwander.

District Judge Michael Stepka ordered Schwander, 17, to stand trial in the June 2 death of Carly, 16. Her body was discovered June 14 buried in sand at a public works facility in Traverse City.

Police said Schwander confessed to killing her and led them to the body, which he is accused of moving two days after he allegedly killed Carly in a vacant building in Traverse City that he used as a temporary home.

Schwander is being held without bond on an open count of murder.
