El Chapo deliberations enter Day 5

NEW YORK — Jurors at the U.S. trial of Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman are in their fifth day of deliberations.

The Brooklyn jurors got back to work on Monday. They’re trying to reach verdicts on 10 separate counts.

The trial testimony lasted nearly three months.

The 61-year-old Guzman could get life in prison if convicted of the multiple drug-trafficking counts.

The defense has accused prosecution cooperators of making him a scapegoat for their own crimes.
