(AP) PHILADELPHIA - A Philadelphia abortion provider will spend another weekend in custody after a jury failed to reach a verdict in his murder case over nearly four days of deliberations.
Dr. Kermit Gosnell is accused of killing four babies allegedly born alive at his clinic. He's also charged in the 2009 overdose of a 41-year-old patient.
Jurors had deliberated since Tuesday afternoon before leaving Friday without a verdict. They are set to return Monday.
They must weigh hundreds of counts against the 72-year-old Gosnell, many of them allegations he performed illegal, third-trimester abortions.
Jurors asked questions Friday about the murder, racketeering and conspiracy charges.
Gosnell's lawyer insists there were no live births at the clinic.
His former employee and unlicensed doctor Eileen O'Neill of Phoenixville is also on trial, charged with fraudulently billing as a doctor. Eight other former employees have pleaded guilty in the case.
