DNA Tests Confirm Executed Man Was Guilty

The case had been closely watched by both sides in the death penalty debate because no executed convict in the United States has ever been exonerated by scientific testing.

The tests, ordered by the governor last month, prove Roger Keith Coleman was guilty of the 1981 rape and murder of his sister-in-law, Gov. Mark R. Warner's spokeswoman Ellen Qualls said.

There was never a doubt about this guy's conviction. The evidence was solid and the dna shd never have been retested.

I hate looking at this guy's photo. If anyone is the poster boy for a psycho-sexual rapist murderer, he's it.
