Paper's investigation leads to DNA tests for inmates

The Columbus Dispatch, in its ongoing coverage of inmate DNA testing, reported that half of the 30 cases highlighted by the newspaper in January as prime candidates for testing have been approved, and evidence is headed to the lab. These fifteen tests are more than have been done in the entire 5-year history of Ohio’s inmate DNA testing program. Most of the inmates had previously been rejected for testing. Others had been approved years earlier, but testing had never been completed.
