BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A federal jury in North Dakota has again not reached a decision in the case of a man accused in a Jamaican lottery scam.

Sanjay Williams, of Montego Bay, Jamaica, is charged with conspiracy, wire fraud and money laundering in U.S. District Court in Bismarck. Jurors deliberated for the second straight day Wednesday before they were dismissed after not reaching a verdict.

They had deliberated for 3½ hours Tuesday after receiving the case.

Authorities say the scam cost victims around the U.S. millions of dollars.

Jurors will begin deliberating at 9 a.m. again on Thursday.
