Ebbers jurors begin deliberations

Saturday, March 5, 2005

NEW YORK -- A jury began deliberations but did not reach a verdict Friday in the trial of former WorldCom chief Bernard Ebbers, accused of orchestrating the $11 billion accounting scheme that bankrupted the company.

The panel spent about five hours discussing the case before adjourning for the week. They were to resume deliberations Monday morning.

Ebbers, 63, is charged with fraud, conspiracy, and lying to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
