Innocence: Life After Death

Virgina Governor Mark Warner is allowing DNA testing in the case of Roger Keith Coleman, a man who professed his innocence of a rape/murder right until the day of his execution.

If the testing excludes Coleman, he will be the first person executed in the United States later proven innocent by genetic testing.

Governor Warner has recently ordered the review of thousands of cases, which has resulted in the exoneration of five men.
