Jury deliberations are postponed in Philadelphia mob trial

Deliberations in the retrial of mob boss Joseph "Uncle Joe" Ligambi and his nephew and co-defendant George Borgesi were postponed today because one of the jurors had a family emergency.

The anonymously chosen panel of 11 women and one man is due back in court Monday to continue the deliberation process that began late Thursday morning.

Ligambi, 74, is facing a racketeering conspiracy charge, two gambling charges and one charge of witness tampering. Borgesi, 50, is charged only with racketeering conspiracy.
