Jerome Isaac, the man who set a 73-year-old woman on fire inside a Brooklyn elevator, has pleaded guilty and could spend the next 50 years behind bars.
As reported by the Associated Press:
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.
Prosecutors say Isaac attacked the 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.
