PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Sentencing has been postponed for two people who pleaded guilty for their work at a corrupt, grimy Philadelphia abortion clinic whose owner was convicted of killing babies born alive.

A judge rescheduled the sentencing date Wednesday for 53-year-old Sherry West and 47-year-old Tina Baldwin because both women still have unresolved federal drug charges pending.

West was convicted of third-degree murder. Baldwin pleaded guilty to racketeering, conspiracy, and corrupting a minor - her daughter, who also worked at Dr. Kermit Gosnell's clinic. West and Baldwin are now scheduled to be sentenced June 24.

Gosnell was convicted this month of first-degree murder in three infant deaths, and involuntary manslaughter in the death of a patient who was given a fatal overdose of painkillers.
