Gosnell employee pleads guilty, agrees to testify against doctor

    Another former employee of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell pleaded guilty yesterday, and has agreed to testify against Gosnell.

    Lynda Williams, 43, pleaded guilty to two counts of third degree murder, the Associated Press reports, for killing a newborn and fatally overdosing a woman at the West Philadelphia clinic. The Wilmington resident was charged in one of many instances at the clinic in which the grand jury report alleges viable newborns were killed by having their spinal cords cut. Her second charge stems from the 2009 overdose death of a pregnant refugee.
