  •  "House of Horrors" (8+ / 0-)
    The fourth week of testimony in Dr, Kermit Gosnell's "House of Horrors" trial began with another former employee testifying about what she saw and what she did while she worked at the Women's Medical Society.

    . . .

    Gosnell is charged with murdering seven babies at the clinic, and with the death of a 41-year old woman who went into cardiac arrest after having an abortion. Prosecutors allege that Gosnell performed illegal, late-term abortions and when babies were born alive, he would sever their spinal cords to kill them.

    West testified that once during an abortion procedure, she was very disturbed when a baby made a screeching noise. She said it was not fully-developed and "it sounded like a little alien. It really freaked me out," West told the courtroom.

    She testified about the death of 41-year-old Karnamaya Mongar, who died after being given too much Demerol, according to the medical examiner. West testified that after Mongar's death, Dr. Gosnell held a staff meeting to reassure employees, but that no procedural changes were made for administering medication.
