Blagojevich jurors end 6th day of deliberations

Jurors have ended another day of deliberations in former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's (bluh-GOY'-uh-viches) corruption retrial.

The jury discussed the evidence for a sixth day Monday. They wrapped up for the day without any word about how close they may be to a decision.

The jurors had gone home last week after sending a note asking the judge for guidance about how to assess ten wire fraud charges. Most of those relate to allegations Blagojevich sought to sell or trade President Barack Obama's vacated U.S. Senate seat.

The judge sent a note back to telling jurors they should look at their jury instructions again and then send another note if they still need help. They did not send another note Monday.

Blagojevich has denied all 20 counts he faces.
