DNA leads to ar­rest in stran­gling of jogger

Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM/NEWS -

NEW YORK — DNA ev­i­dence, some of it match­ing what was found be­neath the vic­tim’s fin­ger­nails, led in­ves­ti­ga­tors to make an ar­rest in last sum­mer’s stran­gling of a woman who en­coun­tered her killer while on an evening run, po­lice said Sun­day. Chanel Lewis, 20, of Brook­lyn, faces a mur­der charge in the Aug. 2 slay­ing of 30-yearold Ka­rina Ve­trano, whose body was found amid the weeds in a marshy park not far from her Queens home. Lewis was ex­pected to be ar­raigned Sun­day and it was un­clear if he had an at­tor­ney. The closely watched case caused fear among women who run alone and baf­fled in­ves­ti­ga­tors.
