A west Philadelphia abortion doctor along with his wife and eight other suspects are arrested.

Dr. Kermit Gosnel faces eight counts of murder in the deaths of a woman and seven babies.

Prosecutors allege those babies were born alive following illegal late-term abortions and then killed by severing their spinal cords.

The woman reportedly died after being overdosed with anesthetics prescribed by Gosnell.

Gosnell is suspected of killing hundreds of babies over the course of his 30-year practice. However, he isn't charged because records of those procedures don't exist.
