Our reporter Doug Donovan is sending updates from the coutroom throughout the corruption trial of Mayor Sheila Dixon.
The jury returned to its third day of deliberating Mayor Dixon's fate this morning at 9. So far, they have asked for several clarifications of legal terms, as well as a delineation of the role of the jury foreman.

The jury ended the day on Friday with a note similar to the one that ended the day on Thursday:
"Things are getting a little overheated. May we be dismissed for the day?"
