A few nuns joined about 200 mourners for the funeral of a Roman Catholic priest convicted of killing an Ohio nun in 1980.
The Blade newspaper reports that among the people attending the service were priests, deacons and nuns from across the Toledo diocese.
Organizations that help victims of clergy abuse are upset that the diocese observed the usual protocol for priest's funeral.
Robinson was serving a life prison sentence for strangling Sister Margaret Ann Pahl at the hospital where they worked. He was barred from ministry but remained a priest because he was still appealing his conviction.
