At this hour, Lewek, who is a psychiatrist, is in jail on $350,000 bail. He's charged with tampering with evidence as part of the investigation. Police and the Medical Examiner have still not released how Matthew Straton died. The 31-year-old is being laid to rest Tuesday.

Investigators found his body partially buried in the backyard of Lewek's home on Rowley Street in the Park Avenue neighborhood.
