Jurors are still considering the 52-count federal racketeering case against alleged leaders of the Philadelphia mob.

The Philadelphia Inquirer says the jury asked to listen to more secretly recorded tapes of the defendants Monday but went home without reaching a verdict.

Jurors are scheduled to resume deliberations Tuesday.

The defendants include 73-year-old reputed boss Joseph “Uncle Joe” Ligambi and alleged underboss Joseph “Moussie” Massimino

Jurors last week reviewed FBI wiretaps involving video poker machines and high-interest street loans allegedly controlled by the mob

Defense attorneys have called the charges exaggerated.
