He grew up in New York and Florida, graduated from Duke University, and has been writing news stories ever since. Since 2000, Yonke has been a full-time religion journalist, writing news and feature stories on all matters of faith, spirituality, belief and religion. This led to his covering the unique case of Father Gerald Robinson, a Toledo Catholic priest arrested in 2004 by cold-case detectives for the 1980 ritual murder of Sister Margaret Ann Pahl. Yonke started covering the Robinson case the day after the priest's arrest, attended every minute of the trial, and followed up with ongoing coverage of the legal appeals and other developments. It is the only time in U.S. history that a Catholic priest has been convicted of murdering a Catholic nun. And police believe the nun was the victim of a ritual killing. Although Robinson lost his appeals to the Ohio Supreme Court and the U.S. Supreme Court, debate and controversy continue to swirl around this case as alternative theories surface of what might have actually happened that Holy Saturday morning, 1980. Robinson died in prison on July 4, 2014. Putting the case to rest. But the interest and debate continue. Yonke is the founder and editor of the nonsectarian, nonprofit religion news site Toledo Faith & Values (ToledoFAVS.com). He also runs a freelance writing, editing and consulting company, Writeminded.media. He and his wife, Janet, have three grown daughters and live near Toledo, Ohio.show less
