DNA collected at the scene of Rhoni Reuter’s murder in 2007 came from an unknown man and not, as originally believed, left unintentionally by police investigators, the lawyer for the woman convicted of the slaying said Thursday.

The recent finding by defense experts comes as Marni Yang continues her legal fight for a new trial on charges she fatally shot Reuter and Reuter’s unborn baby in Deerfield.

Authorities say Yang, 52, was obsessed with Reuter’s boyfriend and the child’s father, former Chicago Bears safety Shaun Gayle, and killed her in hopes of having a relationship with the football star. She was found guilty of murder in 2011 and is serving a life sentence.
