Deliberations resume in John Edwards trial after long weekend

After the long Memorial Day weekend, jurors return Tuesday for a seventh day of deliberation in the corruption trial of former presidential candidate John Edwards.

The jury began its deliberations a week ago.

It requested several exhibits relating to various counts against Edwards early last week.

On Thursday, the eight-man, four-woman jury asked to review another 20 exhibits in the case. That prompted Judge Catherine C. Eagles to say, "If you would like, we could send back all of the exhibits."

When the foreman responded, "Sounds like a great idea," the judge ordered the court record to reflect that at least six jurors nodded, signaling that they would like all of the exhibits.
