Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for Stanley Wayne Robertson of College Station, who had a history of abusing his girlfriend.
Robertson was convicted Thursday of capital murder in the August 2010 stabbing death of Annie Mae Toliver, 59, who was was abducted from College Station and later killed.
Robertson was arrested after his vehicle hit a Fort Worth police car as he attempted to elude officers.
