TN Death Row Inmate Granted New DNA Testing

William Glenn Rogers, a Tennessee death row inmate, has won a motion to test DNA evidence in the kidnapping, rape, and murder of Jackie Beard in 1996.

Rogers believes that the DNA evidence will exonerate him.
"During his trial in 2000, DNA from semen stains found on the girl's shorts were inconclusive. More advanced testing available today could clear his name."
