Jury Rehears Instructions In Clinic Deaths

Posted: Updated:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Jurors weighing murder charges against a Philadelphia abortion provider are being reinstructed on the legal distinctions between murder, manslaughter and infanticide.
    
The jury was in its fourth full day of deliberations Monday in Dr. Kermit Gosnell's capital murder case. Jurors appear friendly toward each other, but focused.
    
Gosnell is accused of killing four babies allegedly born alive at his clinic. He is also charged in a patient's 2009 overdose death.
    
The jury must also weigh hundreds of abortion-law violations, alleging he performed third-trimester abortions and failed to counsel patients.
    
Co-defendant Eileen O'Neill, Gosnell's former employee, is charged with billing as a doctor when she did not have a license.
    
With about two dozen reporters in the courtroom, the judge has also reminded jurors to avoid media coverage of the case.
