US priest guilty of nun's murder

BBC News

A Roman Catholic priest in the US has been found guilty of the murder of a nun 26 years ago in what prosecutors said was a ritualistic killing.

Rev Gerald Robinson, 68, was sentenced to a mandatory 15 years to life in prison by a judge in Toledo, Ohio.

The body of Sister Margaret Ann Pahl, 71, who was stabbed and strangled, was found in a hospital chapel in 1980.

The case was reopened after a woman told a panel on sexual abuse of alleged satanic rituals involving Robinson.
