DA: New DNA testing to be done in 1989 ‘Fatal Attraction’ case

May 4, 2021 By News 12 Staff

There are new developments in the case of Carolyn Warmus, convicted of killing her lover’s wife in the so-called 1989 “Fatal Attraction” case.

The Westchester County District Attorney’s Office has agreed to perform DNA testing on evidence that contributed to Warmus’ conviction.

Warmus was paroled back in 2019 after serving 27 years in prison for the shooting death of Betty Jeanne Solomon in Greenburgh.

The pieces of evidence that would be tested include a glove and a gym bag that were found near Solomon’s body.

Warmus’ attorney said the consent by the DA’s office could be a significant development in exonerating his client.

Both sides will now meet to decide how the testing will proceed.
