Police also found a handgun at Lawson's residence, however, they do not believe the gun was used in the Liles murder, as she suffered blunt force trauma. Lawson is a felon and the possession of the handgun is illegal.
Lawson is being charged with murder, armed burglary, auto theft, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
