A convicted rapist pleaded guilty Tuesday to raping and murdering a 93-year-old woman more than 18 years ago, prosecutors said.

Albert Rodriguez Salinas, 47, was already serving a three-year prison sentence for another rape when he was linked to the long-unsolved case though DNA evidence.

Soo Hoo Quon was discovered April 12, 1991, on the floor of her apartment in El Sereno by an employee delivering breakfast to her.

As part of a plea agreement, Salinas will receive life in prison without the possibility of parole, prosecutors said.
