DNA Test of An Executed Man Ordered

Via TalfLeft:

Roger Coleman was executed in Virginia in 1992 (background here.) Today, Governor Mark Warner ordered DNA tests in his case. If Coleman is innocent, it will be the first documented case of the execution of an innocent person in the United States. The first, but probably not the only one.

If the DNA test proves that Coleman was innocent I would hate to be any governor or preznit that ever signed a death warrant. If this happens then every death penalty case will have to be investigated.
