The convicted killer of Queens jogger Karina Vetrano was sentenced to life in prison without parole Tuesday, and her parents were there in court to confront him. Karina's mother, Cathie Vetrano, held up her slain daughter's shoes. “This is a day where we acknowledge that Karina’s life matters,” Cathie told the court in a powerful victim impact statement. She went on to call Karina's killer, 22-year-old Chanel Lewis, "repulsive."
