Governor Warner orders DNA testing in Coleman case

The Washington Post is reporting that Governor Warner has ordered DNA testing of evidence from the case of Roger Keith Coleman from Buchanan County, who was executed in 1992 for the murder of Wanda McCoy.

The Post story begins: "Virginia Gov. Mark R. Warner (D) has ordered DNA testing that could prove the guilt or innocence of a man executed in 1992, marking the first time a governor has asked for genetic testing of someone already put to death."

The AP has this story.
