A man in New York City pleaded guilty to setting an elderly woman on fire inside the elevator of her apartment building. The attack was recorded on a security camera.Jerome Issac agreed to murder, arson and torture charges in the death of Deloris Gillespie in Brooklyn. It was a plea bargain for a 50 year sentence in prison. Issac attacked the woman because he believed she owed him money, so he doused her with gasoline, lit her on fire and tossed a firebomb into the elevator.
