From the Miami Herald:
A Mississippi man admitted Thursday that he killed two Roman Catholic nuns, pleading guilty to murder in an agreement that avoided the death penalty, which was opposed by the women’s families and their religious orders.
Rodney Earl Sanders made the pleas to two counts of murder in state court in Lexington, blocks away from where Sisters Margaret Held and Paula Merrill had worked as nurse practitioners in a medical clinic. Sanders stabbed to death Held and Merrill in the home they shared in nearby Durant in 2016. He also pleaded guilty Thursday to burglarizing the house and stealing Held’s car. Sanders was also indicted for raping both women, but did not admit guilt on those charges Thursday.
