Tennessee Man Executed for Murder Has DNA Request Denied

An attorney for the estate of a Tennessee man executed for murder 13 years ago says he intends to appeal the denial of an order for DNA testing. A Memphis judge ruled Monday that the estate, represented by April Alley, doesn’t have standing to request the testing. Alley is the daughter of Sedley Alley, executed in 2006 for the 1985 murder of Marine Lance Corporal Suzanne Collins.
The Innocence Project still hopes to exonerate Sedley.
