The man dubbed as the "Northeast Rapist" pleaded guilty to murder on Monday.

Nat Lee Jones was charged in 2012 with the 1980 murder of 74-year-old Mary Hull. Hull was found strangled to death in her home on Laura Street. When Jones was charged with the murder, he was already in prison after he was convicted in the late 1980's on 37 charges of rape. 

He was nicknamed the "Northeast Rapist" for his terror on that part of the city of Rochester.
