The jurors in the corruption trial of Rod Blagojevich, the flamboyant former Illinois governor, and his brother Robert, told the judge Thursday they have reached agreement on just two of two dozen counts, according to NPR's Cheryl Corley who's been monitoring the case.

U.S. District Judge James Zagel has reportedly told the jurors to return to the deliberation room to keep working on reaching further agreement.

An excerpt from an Associated Press story:

CHICAGO (AP) - Jurors in the corruption trial of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich say they have reached agreement on just two of 24 counts against him.

The judge says he'll tell them to go back and deliberate some more.   The jurors said Thursday they have not discussed 11 counts of wire fraud.

They indicated they have discussed the remaining 11 counts and appear to be deadlocked on them.
