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.Not that this affects uncomfirmable's opinion of the execution, but I just thought I'd make note of it.
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.
