Jurors in the Etan Patz murder trial completed their 14th day of deliberations without a verdict Monday on charges against former bodega worker Pedro Hernandez.

The jury had earlier asked to use a laptop to help organize their thoughts with a spreadsheet, and in the only note on Monday, they asked for a printer to make 12 copies of whatever document they created, noting that there were four "tabs" to be printed.

Hernandez, 54, of Maple Shade, New Jersey, is accused of kidnapping and murdering 6-year-old Etan in 1979. The trial in Manhattan Supreme Court lasted 10 weeks.

Jurors said they were stalemated on April 29, but since then have listened to a read-back of the closing arguments from both sides and have continued to deliberate.
