Interesting news.

One of my former coworker’s husbands, John C. Tucker, wrote a book called “May God Have Mercy” regarding the Roger Coleman case.

Today, the AP reported:

New DNA tests confirmed the guilt of a man who went to his death in Virginia’s electric chair in 1992 proclaiming his innocence, a spokeswoman for the governor said Thursday.

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

I guess this should close the chapter on this murder.
