"The man who has spent the last two years on death row was booked into the Caddo Correctional Center just before 4 this afternoon. A Caddo Parish jury found Rodricus Crawford, 28, guilty of first degree murder in the February 2012 death of his 1-year-old baby, Roderius Lott. But Wednesday, the Louisiana Supreme Court overturned the conviction and death sentence and ordered a new trial after finding that the trial judge botched the constitutional process to exclude several black people from the jury. Crawford was brought back to Caddo Parish from Angola today to begin the process of that new trial."
