Executed Virginia man guilty after all

Just following up Uncomfirmable's post from last week. It turns out the Virginia man executed over a decade ago was in fact guilty after all.
DNA tests released this afternoon confirmed the guilt of a Virginia man who had proclaimed his innocence in a slaying and rape even as he was strapped into the state's electric chair in 1992.

Virginia Gov. Mark R. Warner (D) said modern-day genetic analysis that was not available in the early 1990s proves that Roger K. Coleman was present at the crime.
Not that this affects uncomfirmable's opinion of the execution, but I just thought I'd make note of it.
