Jurors spend a third day working toward a verdict in the murder trial of former Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell.

Gosnell is charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of four babies allegedly born alive.

He also faces a third-degree murder charge in the 2009 overdose death of a 41-year-old patient.

The 72-year-old Gosnell has been in custody since his arrest two years ago.

His lawyer argues that there were no live births at the clinic. The trial judge dismissed murder charges involving three other babies.

Jurors must also weigh more than 200 abortion law violations lodged against Gosnell. They started deliberations Tuesday after six weeks of evidence. They return on Thursday.

The panel has asked several questions about billing fraud charges against the only co-defendant, unlicensed doctor Eileen O'Neill of Phoenixville.

NBC10.com is at the Criminal Justice Center and ready to share the verdict when one is reached. Until then, visit our "House of Horrors" Trial section for a complete history of the case and trial.
