The Allegheny County jury deciding the fate of state Supreme Court Justice Joan Orie Melvin and her sister will resume deliberations on Wednesday.

The jury of nine men and three women deliberated for more than six hours Tuesday. Deliberations began on Friday.

Melvin, 56, of Marshall, and her sister and former administrative assistant Janine Orie, 58, of McCandless are charged with using state-paid employees to do political work on Melvin's 2003 and 2009 campaigns for the high court.

Their trial before Common Pleas Judge Lester G. Nauhaus began on Jan. 25.
