(AP) A jury weighing murder charges against a Philadelphia abortion provider will re-hear several hours of testimony before resuming deliberations.


Dr. Kermit Gosnell is charged with killing a patient and four babies allegedly born alive. Prosecutors say the 72-year-old Gosnell routinely killed babies born alive.


The jury is set to spend much of Wednesday reviewing the testimony of medical assistant Lynda Williams.


One of the infant deaths Gosnell is charged with relates to Williams. She has testified that she cut the child in the back of the neck after it was alive for about 20 minutes.


Gosnell is charged with first-degree murder for allegedly conspiring with Williams to kill that baby. Williams has pleaded guilty to third-degree murder.


The jury has been deliberating for a week.
