BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) -- The jury in Jerry Sandusky's sex abuse trial is back in court to listen again to testimony from a key prosecution witness.
A court official says the jury gathered just before 9 a.m. Friday. They returned to the courtroom to listen again to the testimony of Mike McQueary, a onetime Penn State graduate assistant who reported seeing Sandusky assault a boy in a shower.
The jurors had deliberated for more than eight hours Thursday. They had asked Thursday night to rehear testimony from McQueary and Dr. Jonathan Dranov, who testified that McQueary gave him a different account of what he saw.
Sandusky, a former Penn State assistant football coach, is accused of sexual abuse of 10 boys over a 15-year period. He has denied the allegations.
