() It’s shaping up to be a dramatic day in the courtroom for those keeping a watchful eye on the Dr. Kermit Gosnell case. According to columnist J.D. Mullane, a writer for the Bucks County Courier Times, the abortion doctor was acquitted this morning on three counts of murder and one count of infanticide.

In a series of tweets from inside the courtroom, Mullane described the dismissals, noting that Gosnell still has five murder charges remaining against him (in sequence from oldest to newest):

Jack McMahon, the attorney representing Gosnell, apparently asked Judge Jeffrey Minehart for an acquittal. After a recess, Minehart’s decision was noted. As Mullane reports, “Acquittals came after…Jack McMahon argued that DA could not prove babies were alive when [the abortion doctor] severed necks.”
