Jury in Chicago tower terrorism trial still deadlocked
Jurors said Monday they were still deadlocked in the trial of seven Miami men accused of plotting to blow up Chicago's Sears Tower and bomb FBI offices, but a federal judge ordered the panel to continue deliberating. US District Judge Joan Lenard denied a defense motion for a mistrial, instead calling the panel into court and reading a jury instruction designed to bring the case to a resolution. "It is your duty to agree upon a verdict if you can do so," Lenard told the jury of six men and six women, who have been debating the group's guilt or innocence for six days.
