PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Philadelphia man has pleaded guilty to fatally injuring a 95-year-old woman after demanding sex from her during a break-in.

The Philadelphia Inquirer (http://goo.gl/wuQqWx) reports that Hector "Tito" DeJesus told police he had consumed alcohol and cocaine before breaking into Alice Sanders' house in February 2013.

Police say he punched the 97-pound victim in the head when she refused his demand to take off her clothes.

Authorities say the longtime resident of the Kensington neighborhood fell to the floor and lost consciousness. She died a month later.

Investigators say DeJesus had delivered groceries to Sanders that day from the neighborhood store where he worked.

His guilty plea Monday comes with a negotiated sentence of 28 to 56 years in prison.

DeJesus declined to make a statement in court.
