Sources expect new developments in cold-case killing

Officials have hinted at a possible breakthrough in a cold-case killing in Brooklyn.



Chanel Petro-Nixon was 16 years old when she was killed 10 years ago.



She went missing while heading out to drop off a job application at an Applebee's restaurant. Less than a week later, her body was discovered in a garbage bag. She was strangled.



The Brooklyn district attorney has called for a news conference in connection with the case at noon on Wednesday in Bed-Stuy.



Sources close to Petro-Nixon's family say new developments in the case should be expected.
