PHILADELPHIA -  DEVELOPING -- A Philadelphia abortion doctor was sentenced to life in prison without parole Wednesday after he was convicted of killing three babies born alive at his clinic, along with the overdose death of a patient and hundreds of abortion law violations.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell showed no emotion as the judge read his sentences. Gosnell was given two life sentences Tuesday in a deal with prosecutors that spares him a potential death sentence.

Gosnell, 72, was also sentenced to two and a half to five years for involuntary manslaughter in the 2009 overdose death of patient Karnamaya Mongar.
