Man convicted of murder pleads guilty to robbing Saint John bank

A man convicted of second-degree murder nearly 40 years ago has pleaded guilty to robbing a teller with a handgun at the Bayview Credit Union in Saint John on Friday.

The CBC reports Michael David Graham will remain in provincial jail until his sentencing hearing on April 25.

Graham was charged with stealing from the teller as opposed to the bank.

In 1980, the 56-year-old Graham was convicted of second-degree murder in Halifax, which carries an automatic sentence of life in prison with no chance of parole for at least 10 years.
