Dr. Kermit Gosnell leaves court as he faces death penalty for murdering three babies by snipping their spinal cords

Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 72, who ran the now-shuttered Women's Medical Society Clinic, had been charged with four counts of capital murder in the deaths of babies whose spinal cords he was accused of snipping to bring about their deaths. He was found not-guilty on one charge, but each of the first-degree capital murder charges could earn him the death penalty. He was also found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Karnamaya Mongar, 41, a refugee who died after a drug overdose following an abortion in November 2010.
