Jurors in the case of five men accused of plotting an attack on New Jersey's Fort Dix say they expect to finish deliberating Monday.

The jury worked on the case for nearly seven hours on Sunday. It was the fifth day of deliberations.

There were no notes or other requests during Sunday's deliberations. The jury asked for two transcripts in the first four days.

The five defendants are all foreign-born Muslim men who lived for years in a Philadelphia suburb. They're charged with conspiring to kill military personnel and attempted murder. They would face life in prison if convicted of those charges.

None of the men testified in their trial, but their lawyers say they were not plotting anything.
