COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio diocesan official says a Catholic priest convicted of stabbing and strangling a nun 34 years ago in a hospital chapel will receive a funeral Mass.

The official with the Toledo diocese says the Rev. Gerald Robinson remains an ordained priest and his services will follow the usual protocol for diocesan priests' funerals.

Robinson died Friday. The 76-year-old had been serving a prison sentence of 15 years to life in what church historians have characterized as the only documented case of a Catholic priest killing a nun.

He had been in a hospice unit since the end of May after suffering a heart attack,

Robinson was found guilty in 2006 of killing Sister Margaret Ann Pahl in 1980 at a Toledo hospital where they both worked.
