Attorneys are investigating whether there was jury misconduct in the recent conviction of a former Culpeper police officer.
Daniel Harmon-Wright was convicted of voluntary manslaughter.
Harmon-Wright shot and killed Patricia Ann cook last year while she was in her car.
Wednesday, six jurors admitted that they used a dictionary and thesaurus to look up the words "malice", "malicious", and "unlawful" during deliberations.
The jurors were instructed to only consult the information from the trial in making their decision, not dictionaries.
The judge will rule on Friday morning on how this affects the trial.
