Jury reaches verdict in murder trial of Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell.

(NBC News) Philadelphia abortion provider Kermit Gosnell was convicted Monday of three counts of first-degree murder for the death of three babies that prosecutors said were delivered alive and subsequently killed.

Gosnell, 72, could face the death penalty when the jury reconvenes for the sentencing phase next week.

"He's disappointed and he's upset," defense lawyer Jack McMahon said of his client, who appeared calm in the courtroom.

The jury also found Gosnell not guilty of third-degree murder but guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Karnamaya Mongar, a 41-year-old woman who died after an anesthesia overdose during a 2009 abortion.

Gosnell was convicted of a host of other charges, including infanticide, conspiracy and running a corrupt organization, NBCPhiladelphia.com reported.
