The sight of the mutilated body of Sister Margaret Ann Pahl is the darkest memory in the mind of retired Toledo Police officer Dave Davison.

"It's one of those things that you can't get out of your head," said Davison, who retired after a debilitating car accident in 1990. "Seeing that poor old woman sprawled out in the chapel motivated me to keep up the pressure to see that justice was done."

Father Gerald Robinson was charged in 2004 with aggravated murder in the death of Pahl. His twice-delayed trial is scheduled for April 17 before Common Pleas Judge Thomas J. Osowik.

Davison said the delays are part of a strategy to "fix" the case.
