A former Exxon security official pleaded guilty Tuesday to federal charges in the kidnaping death of company executive Sidney J. Reso, saying he never meant to kill him and that Reso died in his arms. Arthur D. Seale said he accidentally shot Reso after abducting him in an attempt to extort $18 million from Exxon Corp. He said Reso, the president of Exxon International, died four days after the April 29 kidnaping. Seale admitted that he tried to extort the money even after Reso's death. U.S.
