Dr. Michael Baden, forensic pathologist and a Fox News contributor, explains

 

A Queens grand jury ​Wednesday handed up an indictment against the Brooklyn man ​arrested in the rape and murder ​of jogger Karina Vetrano ​in August on ​charges including murder.

The indictment charges Chanel Lewis, 20, with four counts of first-degree murder, five counts of second-degree murder, two counts of first-degree aggravated sexual abuse and two counts of first-degree sexual abuse in connection with the 30-year-old’s death.

Lewis faces life behind bars without the possibility of parole if convicted. He will be arraigned on the indictment at a later date.

The raven-haired stunner ​Vetrano ​was last seen before her run on August 2, 2016, when she headed out onto a park trial near her Howard Beach home alone.

Cops say Lewis attacked her as she ran through the marshy area, and then sexually abused and strangled her.
