Jerome Isaac, 48, pleaded guilty to first-degree murder, torture and arson in the December 2011 death of Deloris Gillespie, Kings County District Attorney Charles J. Hynes announced Wednesday.
Court papers revealed at Jerome Isaac’s arraignment Thursday say he boasted to police they’d still be looking for him if the horrific scene had not been caught on video.
The 73-year-old died on Dec. 17 after police say she was doused with gasoline and set ablaze in the elevator of her Prospect Heights apartment building.
“For someone to sit there and set someone on fire…a 73-year old mother — set on fire that’s ridiculous. I mean what is this country coming to?” said Gillespie’s son Everett.
Prosecutors have indicted Jerome Isaac, the man who is accused of burning a 73-year-old woman to death in an elevator of her Brooklyn apartment building.
