New York prosecutors have agreed to DNA testing of evidence that led to the 1992 conviction of so-called “Fatal Attraction” killer Carolyn Warmus.
Warmus was paroled in 2019 after serving 27 years in prison for murdering her lover’s wife, Betty Jeanne Solomon, who was shot nine times in her Greenburgh home in 1989.
Westchester County District Attorney Mimi Rocah consented to the testing Monday, focusing on three pieces of evidence Warmus claims will exonerate her and point to another killer — some semen, blood and a glove from the crime scene.
The victim’s husband, Paul Solomon, and Warmus began an affair while teaching at an Greenville Elementary School in ritzy Scarsdale. Warmus, the daughter of a millionaire insurance executive, was 23 at the time while her lover was 40.
On the night of the killing, the two met at a Yonkers restaurant and had sex in the parking lot before Paul Solomon returned home and found his wife’s body.
