(Salem, OR)  --  The Oregon Innocence Project is asking for DNA testing and a review of evidence in the case of a man who was sentenced to death for murder.  The "Statesman Journal" reports a motion was filed by the group in Marion County regarding the case against 55-year-old Jesse Lee Johnson.  Johnson received the sentence in 2004 after being found guilty of the 1998 murder of 28-year-old Harriet Lavern Thompson.  In its motion, the Oregon Innocence Project claims the existence of evidence that either wasn't tested or was tested using outdated technology.
