PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A Philadelphia jury is back at work deliberating murder and abortion law charges involving a veteran doctor.
Dr. Kermit Gosnell ran a busy corner medical clinic for 30 years, until an FBI raid shut it down in 2010.
The 72-year-old Gosnell is charged with killing babies after they were born alive during unorthodox, late-term abortions. He is also charged in the overdose death of a patient. Gosnell is also charged with performing illegal, third-term abortions and failing to counsel women.
The defense says Gosnell provided care to the needy and helped desperate women get abortions.
The jury heard nearly two months of graphic testimony about conditions at the Philadelphia clinic. Several employees have pleaded guilty to murder charges.
The jury has been weighing the approximately 260 counts for nine days.
