Jurors have ended another day of deliberations in the retrial of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

Jurors discussed the evidence for a sixth day Monday.

They finished for the day without any word they might be close to a decision.

The 11 women and one man went home last week after sending a note to the judge asking for help in 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 jurors telling them they should look at their jury instructions again and then send another note if they still need help. But jurors haven't sent another note.

Blagojevich has denied all 20 counts he faces.
