The jury has started a fourth day of deliberations at the campaign finance fraud trial of former presidential candidate John Edwards.

The jurors ended their talks Tuesday shortly after requesting access to notes from Alex Forger. He is the lawyer for wealthy heiress Rachel "Bunny" Mellon.

The 101-year-old woman provided most of the nearly $1 million in
secret payments prosecutors say Edwards used to help 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.
