The Virginia jury deliberating the fate of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort left the courthouse Monday without delivering a verdict.

The jury deliberated until about 6:15 p.m. ET Monday, raising speculation that they were close to a verdict since they typically end the day a bit earlier. However, the jurors will return Tuesday morning at 9:30 a.m. ET for their fourth day of deliberation.

Deliberations in the case began Thursday morning. The jury laid off around 5 p.m. ET on Thursday and Friday. On Thursday, the jurors ended the day with a series of four questions for the judge. On Friday, they broke early because a juror had an event to attend.

After taking the weekend off, the jury resumed deliberations Monday shortly after 9:3o a.m. ET.

Manafort faces multiple counts of bank fraud and tax fraud in the federal criminal case, the first case to go to trial in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.
