ROBERT LADD. Condemned in the sexual assault and slaying of a Tyler woman during a burglary in 1996. He appealed his conviction and death sentence, saying prosecutors used illegal tactics to exclude minorities from the jury and presented insufficient evidence at trial. Mr. Ladd also challenged the judge's instruction to the jury that they had the option to convict him under the Texas law of parties.
