Illness sends jury home early in Kilpatrick trial

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) -

Jurors returned to work in the corruption trial of former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick -- but not for long.

Court spokesman Rod Hansen says deliberations ended early Monday because a juror wasn't feeling well. The jury will try again Tuesday, one week after deliberations began.

Kilpatrick, his father Bernard and city contractor Bobby Ferguson are charged with running a criminal enterprise that relied on kickbacks, bribes and rigged contracts. Kwame Kilpatrick also is charged with fraud, tax crimes and other offenses.

He resigned as mayor in 2008 in a different scandal.
