NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City man has pleaded guilty to fatally burning an elderly woman inside the elevator of her apartment building.
Prosecutors announced Wednesday that Jerome Isaac had pleaded guilty to first-degree murder, arson and torture in the December 2011 death of Deloris Gillespie in Brooklyn.
The plea bargain calls a sentence of 50 years in prison.
Prosecutors say Isaac attacked the 73-year-old woman because he believed she owed him money. They say he doused her with gasoline, lit her on fire and then threw a firebomb inside the elevator.
The attack was recorded on a security camera.
Isaac is scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 30.
