After deliberating for nine days, the jury found former Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell guilty of first-degree murder in the deaths of three babies born alive during illegal late-term abortions. Gosnell was also found guilty of multiple other crimes, including involuntary manslaughter, infanticide, conspiracy, abortion of pre-born babies older than 24 weeks and violation of informed consent of an abortion.
The judge has set next Tuesday for the start of the penalty-phase hearing.
