Kermit Gosnell, who severed the spinal cords of infants born in spite of abortion attempts at his West Philadelphia clinic, was convicted Monday of three counts of first-degree murder.
The abortion provider was also convicted of involuntary manslaughter in relation to the 2009 death of 41-year-old Karnamaya Mongar, who died of a drug overdose in his clinic.
According to The Washington Post, a jury will now determine whether Gosnell should be sentenced to death or face life in prison for the capital murder offenses.
