Kenneth Tinsley, seen here in a Virginia Department of Corrections photo, was connected to the Culpeper, Va., crime scene where Rebecca Williams was murdered by a DNA match, according to State Police. Tinsley had already been serving a life sentence for rape when Earl Washington was convicted of Williams’s murder. Givens, who was working at the penitentiary when Washington was convicted, said the case deeply shook his faith in the justice system. “If I execute an innocent person, I’m no better than the people on death row,” Givens said.
