A US abortion doctor could face the death penalty after being found guilty of murdering three babies with scissors after they were born alive in his filthy Philadelphia clinic.
Kermit Gosnell, 72, was said to work out of a facility resembling a house of horrors, a place that smelled of animal urine and had fetal remains scattered about in jars and jugs.
He was convicted by a jury in a Philadelphia court, the district attorney's office said. Judge Jeffrey Minehart set Tuesday of next week as the day for starting the death-penalty hearing for Gosnell.
