GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The jury has ended a fourth day of deliberations without reaching a verdict at the campaign finance trial of former presidential candidate John Edwards.

The jurors stopped their talks Wednesday about 15 minutes earlier than usual because a juror needed to leave for a personal reason. The judge did not elaborate.

The jury did not have any questions Wednesday and they did not ask for any evidence.

Prosecutors say Edwards masterminded a plan to use money from two wealthy donors to hide his pregnant mistress as he sought the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008.

Edwards faces 30 years in prison if convicted of six campaign finance charges. The jury began deliberations Friday after nearly four weeks of testimony.
