PHILADELPHIA, P.A. (WKBW) - Jurors in the murder trial of a Philadelphia abortion doctor will continue with their second day of deliberations Wednesday after ending the day before without a verdict.

72-year-old Kermit Gosnell is accused of killing four newborns and a patient by performing illegal abortions.

Prosecuters say Gosnell routinely cut live babies in the back of their necks to sever their spines because he didn't know how to do a proper abortion in utero.

If convicted, Gosnell could face the death penalty.
