Jurors at mob trial ask again to hear tapes

Posted: January 24, 2013

Jurors at the racketeering trial for reputed Philadelphia mob boss Joseph Ligambi and six associates opened a third week of deliberations Tuesday with a familiar request: to listen to FBI recordings of the defendants, including a half-dozen tapes they heard last week.

U.S. District Judge Eduardo Robreno told the jurors they couldn't keep playing the same tapes, but will have to rely on their recollection.

The panel, which last week had two jurors replaced, met for about six hours before breaking without a verdict. Talks resume Wednesday. - John P. Martin
