Deliberations in Ventura trial enter Day 4

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The fourth day of deliberations has begun in the trial over former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura's defamation lawsuit.

Jurors returned to the courthouse Friday for another day of work. They have deliberated for about 19 hours since they received the case Tuesday.

Ventura says Chris Kyle defamed him by fabricating a story in his best-seller "American Sniper" about decking Ventura in a California bar in 2006 after Ventura allegedly said Navy SEALs "deserve to lose a few."

To rule for Ventura, the jury must find by "clear and convincing evidence" that Kyle knew or believed his story was false, or that Kyle had serious doubts about whether it was true.

Ventura's attorney has asked for millions in damages.

Kyle died in Texas last year.
