WOODBRIDGE, Va. - A Philadelphia abortion doctor is accused of killing a Woodbridge, Virginia woman.
Prosecutors say 41 year old Karnamaya Mongar, a recent immigrant and mother of three, died after being overmedicated in an abortion procedure in November of 2009.
Dr. Kermit Gosnell ran a West Philadelphia clinic. Prosecutors called it a "House of Horrors.”
They say it was filthy, had body parts lying around in garbage bags and that the doctor had unlicensed staff performing medical procedures. They claim he made millions from illegal late term abortions.
An attorney for the Mongar family says the woman had spent 18 years in a Nepal refugee camp before moving here in 2009. She discovered she was pregnant and was referred to Gosnell by a D.C. clinic.
The family has also filed a wrongful death suit.
