Jurors will start a seventh day of deliberations later this morning in the theft trial of Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon.

The first sign of any conflict between jurors came Monday, when Judge Dennis Sweeney received a note from the jury saying it could not reach a unanimous verdict on one of the five charges facing Dixon. After denying a defense motion for a mistrial, Sweeney began to craft a note in response to the jury when a new one arrived.

Jurors asked to be dismissed for the day, saying they wanted to return today to discuss "new things that have been brought to light". Dixon can only be convicted of three of the five charges she faces.
