Nuns willing to care for priest who killed nun

TOLEDO, Ohio – A Roman Catholic priest convicted of killing a nun is asking a federal judge in Ohio to let him spend his final days at a nursing home run by nuns.

Attorneys for the Rev. Gerald Robinson said he is near death and want him released from a prison hospice unit in Columbus.

A motion filed in federal court Friday says it’s seeking “an act of grace for a dying man.”

Robinson’s attorney said the Little Sisters of the Poor run a home for the elderly and dying near the priest’s hometown of Toledo and have agreed to care for him.

His brother also has offered to take him in.

Robinson is serving 15 years to life after being convicted in 2006 of killing Sister Margaret Ann Pahl in 1980.
