QUEENS, N.Y. - Chanel Lewis will be sentenced on Tuesday after a judge denied the motion to throw out his guilty verdict.
Jurors testified Monday, after attorneys for Lewis accused them of misconduct.
Lewis was convicted of murder earlier this month in the death of 30-year-old Karina Vetrano.
She was killed while on a run near her Howard Beach home in August 2016.
Prosecutors say Lewis confessed to the killing, but his defense team argues it was coerced.
