Jurors had already deliberated about three hours on Wednesday. They are due back to resume deliberations Friday morning.
Prosecutors say the 69-year-old and another man ran the scheme from 2007 to 2010 through GLC Limited, a West Virginia-based company dealing in wholesale and closeout merchandise. Prosecutors say the pair promised high rates of return but paid investors with other investor money.
Prosecutors have said Donnan used his extensive personal and professional network to lure investors.
Donnan's lawyers say he thought he found a good opportunity and wanted to share it with friends.
If convicted, Donnan could face a lengthy prison sentence.
