AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Jurors in former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's money laundering trial seem to be struggling with their work.

They asked for legal definitions Tuesday that had the judge in the case shaking his head and saying they aren't on the right track.

But just before jurors went home for the day, they sent Senior Judge Pat Priest a note saying they were making progress. Deliberations resume Wednesday.

After one question from jurors, Priest shook his head, and after another, he told attorneys "they are clearly off on a track that has nothing to do with our" trial.

Delay is charged with money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering. He has denied wrongdoing.

The jury has deliberated about 11 hours since Monday.
