NEW YORK (AP) -- Jurors in the New York murder trial involving the 1979 disappearance of 6-year-old Etan Patz (AY-tahn payts) have asked for dozens of exhibits, hours of read-back testimony and a spreadsheet to organize their thoughts. Now they're getting a new tool - a printer.

A 13th full day of deliberations began Monday in the case against Pedro Hernandez. Jurors requested a printer to make hard copies of their spreadsheet for discussion.

A judge nixed an earlier request for a printer. But he approved it this time, saying some technical problems had been solved.

Etan was among the first missing children pictured on milk cartons.

Hernandez made a surprise confession to authorities in 2012. His lawyers say it's false, and they've pointed to another suspect who was never charged.
