Hernandez Warren pleads guilty to 30 year old murder

Hernandez Warren, 59, entered a plea of guilty for killing Gloria Pointer over 30 years ago. Friday at 10 a.m. he will be sentenced by judges. He entered the plea before judges Michael Astrab, John O'Donnell and David Matia. The three judges must handle it based on laws from 1984 involving potential death-penalty cases.

In a conversation with the Gloria's mother Yvonne stated she has forgave Warren and want to now celebrate the life of her daughter. "She was more than just the way she died,'' Yvonne Pointer said. "She was loved by her family.'' Not all family members have accepted the apology from Warren to the Pointer family.

He attacked Gloria, who was walking to school Dec. 6, 1984. He told authorities that he was high on drugs, and lured her to a back stairwell of a building on East 105th Street. Gloria was walking to Harry E. Davis Junior High School. She was to receive an honor that day for perfect attendance.
