Man Pleads Guilty in Crash that Killed Nun in Harlem

A man has admitted he killed an 83-year-old nun in a car crash while he was fleeing police after a series of stickups in 2010.

Dyson Williams pleaded guilty Tuesday to murder, robbery and other charges in a Manhattan court. He's 22. He's expected to get 17 years to life in prison at a May 30 sentencing.

Prosecutors say Williams and 20-year-old William Robbins committed a string of armed robberies on June 22, 2010.

Authorities said Williams was behind the wheel of the men's getaway car when it slammed into a minivan while Sister Mary Celine Graham walked on the street.

Graham was killed in the collision. Four other people were hurt.

Robbins' case is still open. He's due back in court next week.
