DALLAS - A Dallas neurosurgeon may face a life behind bars after a jury found him guilty of deliberately maiming an elderly patient.

Dr. Christopher Duntsch, 45, was accused of crippling four patients and causing the death of two between 2012 and 2013. He practiced at several clinics in Dallas and Collin counties.

The Dallas County trial focused on only one case, a charge of first-degree felony involving a 74-year-old woman who went in for back surgery and ended up losing a third of her blood as well as the use of her leg.

The sentencing phase of Duntsch's trial begins today.
