Jurors in the criminal trial over socialite Brooke Astor's will asked to review several pieces of evidence in their second day of deliberations today.

Jurors asked to look over notes by Astor's nurse, legal documents and a letter written by her son, Anthony Marshall, in which he expressed concern about providing for his wife.

Prosecutors say Marshall took advantage of his mother's declining mental condition to get her to sign over large amounts of her $198 million fortune.

The defense says Astor was lucid at the time.

Marshall is charged with grand larceny.

Estate lawyer Francis Morrissey is also charged in the case.

Astor died in 2007 at the age of 105.
