After less than two days of testimony, a Lufkin jury found Tyrone Taylor guilty of rape. Taylor won't be sentenced for aggravated sexual assault until after a pre-sentencing investigation.
He's accused of raping and robbing an elderly woman last April in her Diboll home. The woman testified Taylor threatened to kill her and her daughter. She says he got into the home after he knocked on her door and she answered it.
Last year, Taylor escaped from the Angelina County jail after being transported there after a court appearance. Deputies caught him just minutes later near the jail.
