  TIMOTHY ADAMS, 42, condemned in the 2002 shooting death of his infant son in Houston following a standoff with police after his wife threatened to divorce him. A jury sentenced Adams to death after he entered a surprise guilty plea to capital murder as his trial was about to start. The Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles Friday rejected a clemency request from family members and three of the jurors who had voted for his execution.
