has the story of the jury’s decision finding abortionist Kermit Gosnell guilty of  murdering three of four babies in which he was charged as well as the involuntary manslaughter in the 2009 death of  Karnamaya Mongar. The penalty phase of the deliberations begin next week and there is a gag order in effect until that time. The Washington Post has a long article on the decision.

This, from the LSN story, is baffling: “The ‘not guilty’ count related to Baby E, who uttered a noise before being killed. Jurors could not determine conclusively that such a sound represented a sign of life.”
