PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- We still don't have a verdict in the federal bribery trial of Philadelphia City Councilmember Kenyatta Johnson and his wife Dawn Chavous. Jurors asked the judge more questions as they deliberated for a second day Thursday.

They will not deliberate Friday due to the Easter holiday.

Prosecutors allege Johnson accepted bribes disguised through a consulting contract with his wife.

Attorneys for Johnson and Chavous say their clients did nothing wrong.
