(AP) Jurors are set to return for more deliberations in the murder trial of a Philadelphia abortion provider.


Dr. Kermit Gosnell is charged in the deaths of four babies and a patient. The jury has been deliberating for about eight days and left Thursday without a verdict.


The panel must also weigh about 250 lesser charges, including racketeering, conspiracy and alleged violations of Pennsylvania abortion law. Prosecutors say Gosnell routinely performed illegal, third-term abortions and failed to counsel women 24 hours in advance.


Jurors reheard several hours of testimony Thursday from a former clinic worker who admits snipping the neck of a baby born into a toilet. That suggests they have been working on one of the five murder charges.


Gosnell's lawyer insists there were no live births at the clinic.
