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, legal pads full of notes and a spreadsheet to organize their thoughts. And now they even have a printer to put their spreadsheet on paper.

But even with the technological aid, jurors in the case against Maple Shade, New Jersey, resident Pedro Hernandez didn't reach a verdict Monday, their 13th full day of deliberation. They're due to return Tuesday.

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

Hernandez made a confession in 2012. His lawyers say it's false, and they've pointed to another suspect who wasn't charged.

A judge nixed an earlier jury request for a printer. But he OK'd it Monday, saying some technological questions had been answered.
