The family of 41-years-old Karna Maya Mongar, a resettled woman who was allegedly killed by a doctor due to overdose of drugs, is likely to get justice in the United States.
Rays of hopes appeared to the Mongar family after a judge tossed out three of eight murder charges including a third degree murder charge against a Philadelphia abortion provider, Dr Kermit Gosnell.
“The doctor has been accused of repeated medication dosages given by medical assistants; Gosnell’s absence during most of her visit; and the hour it took to open a locked side door and take her by stretcher to an ambulance,” reported the USA Today.
The woman died right after an abortion.
Gosnell, 72, whose abortion clinic has been called a “house of horrors,” still faces the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder in four remaining infant deaths, according to the report.
The judge also upheld murder charges in a patient’s overdose death.
“She wasn’t treated any differently than any of the other thousands of other people who went through there,” Gosnell’s attorney, Jack McMahon argued.
While, Assistant District Attorney Edward Cameron countered that there was adequate testimony from former employees on whether the seven were born alive and that the jury should be allowed to decide.
“It stemmed from the totality of the circumstances,” Cameron said.
Gosnell has been in jail since he was charged in January 2011 after a grand jury probe, and faces 23 charges including murder in a case that has rekindled debate in the United States about late-term abortions. Under Pennsylvania law, abortions can be performed up to 24 weeks.
Late Karna Maya was a refugee from Timai camp.
