TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio Supreme Court won't hear the appeal of a woman who claims she was sexually abused in satanic rituals by a Roman Catholic priest later convicted of murdering a nun.

The Blade newspaper of Toledo reports the woman said the abuse began when she was a child in the late 1960s and lower courts found that her 2005 lawsuit came too late. The state's highest court on Wednesday declined without comment to review the case.

In a filing with the Supreme Court, an attorney for the Toledo diocese called the allegations against both the Rev. Gerald Robinson and a now deceased Catholic lay teacher "irresponsible," ''untrue" and "tall tales."

Robinson is serving 15 years to life in prison for the 1980 killing of Sister Margaret Ann Pahl.
