Dr. Kermit Gosnell asked in court Thursday that seven of the murder charges against him be explained. He raised his eyebrows as Magistrate Jane Rice detailed the charges on the baby deaths.

Several clinic workers were also arraigned on various charges. Gosnell was denied bail, and his next court appearance is set for February.

He was charged with eight counts of murder and a host of other charges Wednesday after a scathing grand jury report.

It described baby body parts kept in jars on shelves and the killings of live-born, late-term babies by severing their spinal cords with scissors.
