The jury in the 1MDB conspiracy case against former Goldman Sachs banker Roger Ng has asked to review testimony from his wife that the defense says is key to its case.

After seven weeks of testimony in federal court in Brooklyn, New York, the jurors deciding the fate of Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s former head of investment banking in Malaysia made the request soon after they began their deliberations on Tuesday afternoon.
