COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An attorney for a Roman Catholic priest who was convicted of killing a nun in 1980 says he has a terminal illness and has been moved to a state hospital.

Toledo attorney Richard Kerger said Tuesday that the Rev. Gerald Robinson was flown to a Columbus hospital on Saturday to be evaluated for heart problems. The 76-year-old Robinson was then moved to a prison hospital after doctors told the family he was terminal.

Kerger said he was told Robinson was moved to a hospice, but a state prisons spokesman said the prison hospital in Columbus doesn’t have a specific hospice ward.

Robinson was serving a life sentence at the Southeastern Correctional Institution near Lancaster.

He was convicted in 2006 of killing Sister Margaret Ann Pahl during Easter weekend in 1980.
