Jurors will return for a fifth day in Miami federal court to deliberate the fate of a Muslim cleric accused of supporting the Pakistani Taliban.

The 12-person panel quit Friday evening without reaching a verdict in the case of 77-year-old Hafiz Khan. They now must return Monday to continue their deliberations.

The jury already sat through a two-month trial on U.S. charges that Khan provided about $50,000 to the Pakistani Taliban. Khan testified the money was for needy people, family members and a religious school or madrassa he owns in Pakistan's Swat Valley.

If convicted, Khan faces maximum sentences of 15 years on each of four terror support-related charges.

Two of Khan's sons were previously cleared of all charges. Three other defendants remain in Pakistan.
