Blagojevich jury entering 4th day of deliberations

CHICAGO (AP) -- Jurors at the corruption retrial of ousted Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich are set to resume deliberating.

Wednesday's the fourth day of deliberations for the 11 women and one man.

Jurors sent their first note to the presiding judge Tuesday. It offered no clear clues about whether the jury is close to a verdict.

The note said jurors had different numbers of pages in one transcript of an FBI wiretap recording.

The jurors stopped reading when they realized the discrepancy. The judge said the extra pages some jurors had shouldn't have been in the binders and ordered they be collected.

Blagojevich faces 20 counts, including allegations that he tried to sell or trade President Barack Obama's vacated Senate seat. He has denied any wrongdoing.
