Chanel Lewis, 20, of Brooklyn, was taken into custody Saturday for allegedly killing jogger Karina Vetrano, NBC New York reports.
According to the NYPD, DNA evidence has led to the arrest of 20-year-old Chanel Lewis of Brooklyn.
Queens District Attorney Richard Brown told a news conference he expected Lewis to be arraigned later in the day. Check back later for updates.
The New York Daily News reported that officers are questioning a man who was linked to the victim through DNA found on her body.
Lewis had no criminal history, and police say they do not believe he knew Vetrano at all.

In August of 2016, police say she made a decision to run by herself and her father, who is a retired firefighter, became anxious when she didn't immediately return home. During another inquiry last week, investigators asked him for a DNA sample, which he voluntarily provided.
"Karina helped us identify this person", the chief said. That's how we were able to bring this profile up.
An autopsy confirmed that she was strangled and sexually assaulted, and had put up a vigorous fight.
The six-month investigation sparked the launch of a GoFundMe page for Vetrano, which has raised more than $287,000 to date. Her father later discovered her badly beaten body.
After DNA matched samples found at the scene, he was arrested.
"I am not going to say it's good, but we can move forward now". "We know who did this", Phillip added.
When she didn't come back from the run, though, Phil Vetrano grew anxious.
