(AP) A Philadelphia jury is breaking for the weekend amid deliberations in the capital murder case of an abortion provider.


Jurors return Monday to weigh charges that 72-year-old Dr. Kermit Gosnell killed a patient and four babies allegedly born alive.


Gosnell ran a busy neighborhood medical clinic for 30 years, until an FBI raid shut it down in 2010.


Gosnell is also charged with performing illegal, third-term abortions and failing to counsel women.


The defense says Gosnell provided care to the needy and helped desperate women get abortions.


The jury heard nearly two months of graphic testimony about conditions at the West Philadelphia clinic. Several employees have pleaded guilty to murder charges.


Monday will mark the 10th day of deliberations. The jury is weighing about 260 counts, including five murder counts.
