Chanel Lewis, 20, was charged with second-degree murder in the death of Karina Vetrano.

Leaving court, Cathy Vetrano yelled, "He's a demon!"

Vetrano, 30, had gone missing from her Howard Beach home after going for a jog.

Some time ago, an off-duty cop saw him acting suspiciously somewhere in Howard Beach, and called the local precinct. Her father found her badly beaten body in a secluded marsh.

Police say a person is in custody, but didn't release any further details.


Police said on Sunday that the new lead came after they listened back to 911 calls from the area near where the body was found. Detectives first spoke with Lewis Thursday. I just lost it.

Now a man in his 20s, who lives in a housing project in East New York, Brooklyn, has been detained on suspicion of her murder on Saturday night.

Lewis, who liked to listen to Drake and other hip hop artists, is a proud uncle to nieces and never showed any animosity toward women, his sister said.

Police confirm Lewis has no criminal history, but had three summonses. He reportedly lied to his mum about how he got them before later confessing to authorities.

DNA evidence also linked Lewis to the crime scene, police said.
