The jury in the trial of Aaron Brady for the murder of Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe is to continue its deliberations tomorrow.
The 29-year-old, of New Road, Crossmaglen in Co Armagh, denies murdering the detective, who was shot dead while on duty at Lordship Credit Union, Bellurgan, Co Louth on 25 January 2013.
Mr Brady is also accused of robbing about €7,000 in cash and cheques on the same day at the same location.
The jury of six men and seven women has now been deliberating for about six hours, following a trial that began on 28 January.
The jury heard from 139 witnesses during 60 days of evidence at the Central Criminal Court.
It is the prosecution's case that Mr Brady shot Detective Garda Donohoe during a robbery.
The defence claims the 29-year-old had been moving laundered diesel waste at the time.
Mr Justice Michael White told the jury it would resume its deliberations at 9am tomorrow.
