Albany--A serial killer suddenly pleads guilty to murdering his wife 20 years ago.

Sixty-one-year-old Johnny Robinson unexpectedly pleaded guilty to murder Friday morning during a pre-trial hearing. He was sentenced to life in prison.

Robinson used several aliases, including Johnny Taylor and Johnny Quinn. On May 20th, 1982, he strangled his wife Kathy Taylor at their home.

Robinson has admitted to killing four people in Georgia, Michigan, Alabama, and Florida. "His conscience was bothering him from this murder and others he had allegedly been involved in, and he wanted to go ahead and enter his plea of guilty," said Greg Edwards, Assistant D.A.

Robinson will now be returned to Michigan to face another murder charge. Alabama and Florida authorities could then seek to try him for crimes there.
