NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Jury deliberations entered day three in the corruption trial of former Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano, his wife Linda and former Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto.

On Monday, jurors sent the judge a note saying they could not come to agreement on "certain items."

The judge  instructed jurors to return Tuesday and to keep trying to reach a verdict.

Both men are accused of taking bribes from restauranteur Harendra Singh in exchange for helping him secure a pair of county contracts and more than $20 million in town-guaranteed loans.

Linda Mangano is accused of accepting a $450,000 no-show job.
