NEW YORK (AP) — The name that keeps coming up more than any other at Harvey Weinstein’s rape trial — Annabella Sciorra — was front and center again Friday as jurors began their fourth day of deliberations by listening to a reading of a large chunk of her testimony.

Before going home the day before, the Manhattan jury had sent the judge a note saying it wanted to review the cross-examination of the “Sopranos” actress and any follow-up questioning by prosecutors.

The jury has already focused on emails that Weinstein sent regarding Sciorra, including ones to the private Israeli spy agency he allegedly enlisted to dig up dirt on would-be accusers as reporters were working on stories about allegations against him in 2017.
