Verdict in for Tyler Man Accused in Back Door Burglaries

A verdict came back Thursday in the aggravated robbery trial of a Tyler man also accused in a string of Tyler back door home burglaries.

32 year old Lawrence Madlock was found guilty.

DNA tied Madlock to the scene of a convenience store robbery where the victim says he crashed through a glass door and threatened her with a gun.

Friday morning, Madlock will be sentenced for the aggravated robbery. Prosecutors say since Madlock has a history of felony offenses, he could face 25 years to life in prison just for this offense.

He's also the prime suspect in more than 20 home burglary cases.  So far, he's been indicted in six of those cases.
