    The jury in the perjury case of former Giants' slugger Barry Bonds ended a second day of deliberation without a verdict.

    The eight-woman, four-man panel began Monday by listening to a clerk read back the testimony of Bonds' former personal shopper, Kathy Hoskins.

    Hoskins testified that she witnessed Bonds' personal trainer, Greg Anderson, inject the player in the navel at the slugger's house before a road trip during the 2002 season.

    She is the only person with eyewitness testimony to an injection. One of the four perjury-related counts Bonds is charged with alleges he lied to the grand jury when he said no one but his doctor ever injected him with anything.

    The jurors requested on Friday that they be allowed to hear Hoskins' testimony again. Most of them scribbled notes when Hoskins' testimony about the injection was read back. Bonds kept an eye on the jurors during the reading of the passage.

    The jury began deliberating Friday morning.

    Now 46, Bonds owns the major league records for most home runs in a season and a career.
