DNA leads to arrest in strangling of jogger
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.
