Priest convicted of killing nun moved to hospital

Written by 

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An attorney for a Roman Catholic priest convicted of killing a nun in 1980 says the man has a terminal illness and was moved to an Ohio hospital.

Toledo attorney Richard Kerger said Tuesday that the Rev. Gerald Robinson was flown Saturday to a Columbus hospital to be evaluated for heart problems. The 76-year-old Robinson was then moved to a prison hospital after doctors told the family he was terminal.

Kerger says he was told Robinson was moved to hospice care. A state prisons spokesman wouldn't comment on Robinson's condition but confirmed the prison hospital in Columbus has a hospice unit.

Robinson was serving a life sentence at the Southeastern Correctional Institution near Lancaster.

He was convicted in 2006 of killing Sister Margaret Ann Pahl during Easter weekend in 1980.
