Kermit Baron Gosnell - once a community activist called on to help rebuild Mantua - was arrested on Jan. 19, 2011, and charged with eight counts of murder. One count arose out of the death of a woman who received an overdose of anesthetic at his clinic; seven counts involved infants that, officials say, he delivered live and then killed. Nine employees, including his wife, Pearl, were also arrested. Four were charged with murder. The grand jury in the case said Gosnell had been allowed to keep operating for nearly four decades despite numerous violations of state laws regulating doctors and abortion clinics. Gosnell has maintained his innocence.
