A Washington County grand jury has indicted a Hagerstown man in the Feb. 7 shooting death of a Smithsburg man.

Meeting Monday, the grand jurors indicted Steve C. Miletek on charges of first- and second-degree murder and first- and second-degree assault, according to Washington County State's Attorney Kenneth Long.

Washington County Sheriff's deputies allege that Miletek, 42, of 20109 Robinwood Court, Apt. 211, fired one shot into Tony Allen Lewis' shoulder after an argument with his live-in girlfriend, Kimberly Kay Clayton and Lewis at around 8:30 p.m.

Lewis, 32, of Smithsburg, died in the apartment before ambulances arrived.

After the shooting, Miletek and Clayton waited 11 minutes before calling 911, during which time the couple discussed the shooting, according to allegations in charging documents.

Miletek, who has been in custody since the shooting, was being held without bond Tuesday.

When questioned about her relationship with Lewis, Clayton first told deputies they were friends but later "admitted to having sexual intercourse with him one time," charging documents said.

Miletek told deputies he was sitting at the kitchen table with Lewis and Clayton on the night of the shooting and remembered becoming "super mad," because "he had been told something he didn't want to hear," according to allegations in charging documents.

He said he shot Lewis because of the affair, deputies alleged in the charging documents.

"If I had to do it all over again I would do the same thing. I don't play games like that," the charging documents quote Miletek as saying.
