Police suspicions shifted to Warmus when she began to relentlessly stalk Solomon, following him and Ballor to Puerto Rico and calling Ballor’s family in an effort to end the relationship. When investigators gained information that Warmus had obtained a .25 caliber Beretta pistol with a silencer shortly before the murder, Detective Richard Constantino checked calls made from Warmus’ home phone on January 15. He discovered one made at 3:02pm to Ray’s Sport Shop in North Plainfield, New Jersey. Store records indicated the only female to purchase .25-caliber ammunition that day was Liisa Kattai from Long Island. When questioned, Kattai denied ever being in the shop or buying ammunition. Further investigation determined that Kattai’s driver’s license had been lost or stolen while she was employed at a summer job, where one of her co-workers was Warmus. Police now had enough evidence to make an arrest.


Warmus was incarcerated at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women, Westchester County, New York. She received multiple affirmed disciplinary events, which were referenced during her first parole denial in early 2017. That same year, Warmus, claiming her innocence, asked that glove evidence discovered by her ex-lover Paul Solomon between the first and second trials be tested for DNA. As of October 2017, the glove has not been tested.

Warmus was incarcerated at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women. Under inmate ID#: 92G0987, Warmus’ incarceration disciplinary history document was released in January 2017. The document reports eleven Tier III and four Tier II misconducts, with a total of eleven misconducts being ruled as affirmed. Warmus had her first parole hearing on January 9, 2017, represented in the state appellate court by attorney Mayer Morganroth. She was denied parole in January 2017 and again in July, 2018, but was granted parole in June 17, 2019.

The Cable News Network (CNN) produced a CNN Special Report, episode “Fatal Attraction or Fatal Mistake?: The Carolyn Warmus Story”, aired: 4 August 2017. The report detailed Warmus’ belief that DNA on the cashmere glove evidence presented at the second trial could exonerate her if the court were to allow its retesting. Paul Solomon declined to be interviewed by CNN for this special report.


Warmus entered court on November 17, 2016, to argue about legal fees with her former appeals lawyer, Julia Heit, whom she is suing for malpractice. Warmus claims Heit falsely managed her appeal, in part, by not testing DNA, and is seeking a return of $80,000 in fees and hand over an additional $320,000 in total compensation. According to her current attorney, Mayer Morganroth, Warmus is hoping to get out of prison so she can have surgery for a brain tumor.

Glenn Looney, was arraigned in the town of Bedford court on April 15, 2004, on a charge of second-degree sexual abuse, a misdemeanor. Warmus backed her claim by providing prison officials with a sample of Looney’s semen that she had kept refrigerated in plastic. In 2008, Warmus received $10,000 from the Department of Correctional Services in settlement of the lawsuit.

Author Mike Gallagher released the book Lovers of Deceit: Carolyn Warmus and the “Fatal Attraction”. The writing covers the shooting of her lover’s wife in cold blood and recounts the circumstances leading up to and during the trial, published: 1 May 1993, LCCN 92040725.

The short lived (1993-1995) ABC television news magazine series Day One aired Warmus’ first public interview, premiered: 2 August 1993. Warmus was interviewed by broadcast journalist Forrest Sawyer at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility.


In January 1992, a second trial began in which prosecutors presented new evidence: a bloody cashmere glove allegedly belonging to Warmus that was photographed and recovered from the crime scene. Warmus’ attorney questioned why the glove, which was found by Solomon in a closet between the first and second trial, was allowed as evidence, and argued that the prosecution failed to provide definitive proof that the glove belonged to Warmus or that it was the same glove as the one pictured in the crime scene photographs. The judge allowed the glove to stand as evidence in the case. The defense continued to press its argument that Solomon was trying to frame Warmus for the murder. The jury deliberated for six days before returning a guilty verdict for second-degree murder and second-degree criminal possession of weapon on May 27, 1992.

On June 26, 1992, Judge John Carey, who presided over both of Warmus’ trials, imposed a maximum term of 25 years to life in prison for the murder; and the maximum sentence of five to fifteen years in prison on the weapon count, to be served concurrently. Judge Carey stated that Warmus committed “a hideous act, a most extreme, illegal and wanton murder”. For the first time in both of her trials, a weeping Warmus spoke in the courtroom:

ABC aired the docudrama A Murderous Affair: The Carolyn Warmus Story, on 13 September 1992. Solomon allowed for his name to be used and cooperated with the production company. One month later, CBS aired their own competing docudrama, The Danger of Love: The Carolyn Warmus Story, on 4 October 1992. While based partly on Solomon’s version of events, he refused to have his name used in the CBS film.


The trial lasted nearly three months. After twelve days of deliberations, the jury came back deadlocked at 8-4 in favor of conviction, but unable to arrive at the required unanimous verdict. The judge declared a mistrial on April 27, 1991.

Following Warmus’ first trial, the Scarsdale school board faced public pressure to remove Solomon as a teacher, as he had testified in court to having multiple extramarital affairs, including his fling with Warmus. In September 1991, Solomon was removed from classroom duties and was assigned non-teaching duties. His removal was an amicable decision in coordination with Solomon, the school board and the principal of Greenville Elementary.


On February 2, 1990, Warmus was indicted on the charges of second-degree murder and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon. Her first trial began January 14, 1991, at the Westchester County Courthouse, with David Lewis as her attorney.


Early in the evening of January 15, 1989, a New York Telephone operator received a call from a woman in distress. When the call was abruptly disconnected, she alerted police, but they found nothing because the reverse directory had an incorrect address. At 11:42pm, the body of Betty Jeanne was found in the family’s Greenburgh condominium by Solomon. She had been pistol-whipped in the head and shot nine times in her back and legs.


The murder case attracted national media attention and led to comparisons with the 1987 film Fatal Attraction, about a love affair that turns deadly. The Warmus case went on to inspire made-for-TV movies, six different episodes across multiple television broadcasters and at least one book.

Solomon testified at the first trial, and received immunity from prosecution in return for his testimony. He said he met Warmus in the fall of 1987 at an elementary school in Greenburgh, and that they soon became sexually involved. The following spring, Solomon wanted to end the unfaithful relationship: “I said, ‘Carolyn, you know we’re not going to be able to see each other in the summer'” He went on to testify, “She was upset. She cried. She said, ‘Life’s not worth living without you.’ I said, ‘Carolyn, don’t be over dramatic.'” During the first trial, the defense asserted that Solomon and the gun seller (a private investigator) tied heavily to the case should have been tried for the murder instead of Warmus.


Warmus earned good grades, played basketball and graduated from Seaholm High School in Birmingham. In 1981, she enrolled at the University of Michigan. After graduating with a degree in psychology, Warmus moved to New York City. Soon after, she earned a master’s degree in elementary education from Teachers College, Columbia University and landed a job in September 1987 at Greenville Elementary School in Scarsdale, New York. There, she met soon-to-be lover Paul Solomon, a fifth-grade teacher, along with his family, wife Betty Jeanne and daughter Kristan.


In 1970, Thomas’ wife Elizabeth filed for divorce and, after two years, won custody of Warmus and her two younger siblings. The divorce decree was handed down when Warmus was eight years old.


Carolyn Warmus (born January 8, 1964) is an American former elementary schoolteacher who was convicted at age 28 of the 1989 murder of her lover’s wife, 40-year-old Betty Jeanne Solomon.
