TOLEDO, Ohio -- After six hours of deliberations, a jury in Lucas County Common Pleas Court found a priest guilty of killing a nun in a Toledo hospital chapel in 1980.

There were gasps in the courtroom as the verdict was read just after 11:30 a.m.

The jurors did not look at the Rev. Gerald Robinson as they left the courtroom.

A judge sentenced him to 15 years to life. That makes him eligible for parole after 15 years.
