DNA testing from a 1993 killing in Arkansas has revealed genetic material from a male other than the inmate executed for the murder four years ago.

The American Civil Liberties Union and the Innocence Project on Friday released summaries of the testing of evidence from the 1993 murder of Debra Reese. Ledell Lee, who was convicted of her murder, was one of four inmates executed by Arkansas in 2017.

The city of Jacksonville last year agreed to allow new tests on fingerprints and DNA evidence after the groups had sued. Lee was the first of four inmates Arkansas executed in April 2017 before its supply of a lethal injection drug expired.

4. So we had misconduct by the judge, and now DNA says the guy didn't do it.

Arkansas should be charged with murder.

7. Tragic, outrageous, and TOTALLY unsurprising to anyone who has paid the slightest bit of attention.

Capital punishment in America is fucked up. In theory, in practice, retrospectively, prospectively.
