Nuns willing to care for priest who killed nun

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — A Roman Catholic priest convicted of killing a nun at a hospital chapel in 1980 wants a federal judge to let him out of prison so he can spend his final days at an Ohio nursing home run by nuns.

The Rev. Gerald Robinson has been in a prison hospice unit in Columbus since the end of May after suffering a heart attack and now wants to die in his hometown of Toledo, his attorney said in a motion filed in federal court Friday.

“What is sought is an act of grace for a dying man,” said Richard Kerger, Robinson’s attorney.

God have mercy on the priest and rest of us sinners.
