Clown murder suspect may face death penalty as cops credit DNA advances for breakthrough in 1990 cold case

A woman who authorities say committed murder in Florida while dressed as a clown 27 years ago may face the death penalty after being charged this week.

A new examination of DNA collected in 1990 helped lead to the arrest of Sheila Keen-Warren in the fatal shooting of 40-year-old Marlene Warren, cops said during a press conference on Thursday. Keen-Warren is now married to the victim’s husband, Michael Warren.

Keen-Warren had been the primary suspect all along, but authorities say a conviction may not have been realistic without the advancements in DNA technology.
