PHILADELPHIA - The jury in the death penalty trial of a Philadelphia abortion provider has gone home without a verdict after another day of deliberations.
Dr. Kermit Gosnell is charged with five counts of murder in the deaths of a patient and four babies allegedly born alive and then killed with scissors.
Jurors are expected to return Tuesday, a week after they started deliberations. They must also weigh racketeering, infanticide and alleged abortion-law violations.
Jurors appear to be working on the murder charges, based on questions they asked Monday about the legal definition of murder, manslaughter and infanticide.
They have also been told to avoid media reports about the high-profile case.
Co-defendant Eileen O'Neill, Gosnell's former employee, is also on trial, charged with billing as a doctor when she had no license.
Pennsylvania's highest court is limiting the power of prosecutors to seize people's property through civil actions.Read More »
