Virginia man arrested in deaths of father, nun

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — The man suspected of killing one nun and abducting another after murdering his father was arrested early Thursday, police said.

Adrian O'Neill Robinson, 25, was arrested at a Norfolk fast-food restaurant, police said. Police had been searching for him since Sunday, when they say he shot his 56-year-old father, Henry, at the home they shared in the western Georgia town of Hamilton.

Family members told authorities that Robinson accused his father of sexually assaulting him before shooting him 16 times. He then abducted the nuns, apparently to use their car, police said.

The body of Sister Philomena Fogarty, who was in her 60s, was found in an office building parking lot.

The other nun, 72-year-old Lucie Kristofik, was found Tuesday at a Norfolk hotel. She told authorities Robinson had left the motel sometime Tuesday with Fogarty.
