The Virginia Supreme Court refused today to order new D-N-A testing in the case of a killer who was executed ten years ago.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=04-File Tape;]


Roger Coleman was put to death for the 1981 rape and murder of his sister-in-law in Grundy.
Coleman and his supporters always maintained he was innocent.
Four newspapers and a group that investigates wrongful convictions asked the court to order Coleman's samples turned over so new testing could be done.
The state supreme court said in its unanimous ruling that the "right to test evidence in a criminal case" does NOT extend to the press and the general public.
D-N-A tests done before Coleman's death strongly suggested he was guilty, but plaintiffs claimed new testing procedures could provide more conclusive results.

(( Ask Edith Fellows, and she'll tell you she's 79. The University of California study asked women over 80 to do mental agility tests that might tax a younger woman. Spelling "world" backwards was one quiz. In fact, women at least 80-years old who are lifetime coffee drinkers out perform their sisters on 11 out of 12 tests.
How would you do if somebody asked you to name all the animals you could in a minute?
sot:

Scientists think caffeine not only improves memory, it repairs it. Edith is just a little skeptical.
sot:

Women in the study drank anywhere from one cup of coffee a month, to five cups a day.
sot:

Interestingly enough, the same doesn't seem to be true of older men who drink coffee all their lives. People generally experience a fall-off in memory and mental function after age 60, but coffee drinking women actually seem to function better. The link between coffee drinking and stronger memory continued no matter what the women's age, education, or hormone replacement therapy, which was already proven to help brain power.))
