(AP) Twelve jurors have now been selected for the capital murder trial of a Philadelphia abortion provider.


Dr. Kermit Gosnell is charged with eight counts of murder in the deaths of a female patient and seven babies who prosecutors say were killed after late-stage abortions.


Gosnell has pleaded not guilty.


After more than a week of jury selection, a Philadelphia man became the last regular juror chosen Tuesday. But lawyers are still searching for six alternates since the trial could last two months.


Prosecutors say the 72-year-old Gosnell ran a rogue clinic that flouted health and safety laws governing abortions, anesthesia and the distribution of painkillers.


A 2011 grand jury report alleges that untrained staff performed complex medical duties before Gosnell came to the clinic each day.
