GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — The jury in the John Edwards campaign corruption trial has begun a ninth day of talks in North Carolina.
As the jury ended its eighth day of talks without a verdict Wednesday, the judge released four alternate jurors who garnered attention for their matching shirts. They have not participated in the deliberations, which resumed Thursday.
U.S. District Court Judge Catherine C. Eagles did not give any indication of whether she believed the 12 jurors are any closer to deciding the fate of the two-time Democratic presidential candidate.
Edwards faces six felony charges in a case involving nearly $1 million provided by two wealthy political donors to help hide the Democrat's pregnant mistress as he sought the White House in 2008.
