Jury deliberations are underway in Federal Court in the trial of an area cancer doctor and his wife.

Dr. A.K. Sen and his wife Patricia rejected a plea agreement earlier this month and opted to face the charges against them in court.

A Federal Grand Jury previously indicted the couple on 38 counts back in June. The indictment accused the couple of buying $3 million worth of unapproved, misbranded cancer drugs beginning in 2009, which were then distributed to patients at East Tennessee Cancer and Blood Center in Greeneville.

The jury began deliberations this morning. Prosecutors say in all they have 83 counts to decide on.
