Andrea Constand walks to the courtroom for Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania.

But they didn't come up with a verdict, leaving them exhausted and spent after a long day in the jury room. They'll resume talks Wednesday morning.

The prosecution leaned on Cosby's words in the 2005 deposition, in which he admitted obtaining sedatives with a view to having sex.

After the judge's final instructions, the jury was expected to begin its deliberation. Cosby is on trial for sexual assault.

Jurors deliberated into the night Tuesday, going outside for some fresh air after 8 p.m.

He is being accused of drugging and raping Constand at his Elkins Park home back in January of 2004. He has repeatedly denied wrongdoing and described his encounters with Constand as consensual.

The jury got the case Monday afternoon.

Constand, 44, claims Cosby knew she had an aversion to pharmaceutical drugs and assured her the pills were "herbal".

Jurors have asked four questions amid their deliberations. But the brisk story laid out by prosecutors has focused mostly on what happened one night in 2004 at Cosby's suburban Philadelphia home. Cosby also declined to tell her what pills he had given Andrea Constand, but he did say they were from a prescription bottle, she testified. Constand told police she was semiconscious as he molested her.

The House's health care bill is 'mean,' Trump reportedly tells senators
But Republicans can only afford to lose support for the bill from just two of their 52 senators for that legislation to pass. Bill Cassidy (R-La.), a key figure in the Senate's health care debate, said he wasn't as confident in the process.

"I wanted it to stop", she testified.

After taking the pills, Constand said, she had trouble talking and difficulty moving and was suffering double vision, before briefly losing consciousness.

Constand is among dozens of women who have accused Cosby of drugging and molesting them but her allegation is the only one to prompt criminal charges, which were filed in December 2015 shortly before the statute of limitation was due to expire. Constand - an athletic, 6-foot-tall college basketball staffer - said they made her dazed and groggy, and unable to say no or fight back when Cosby went inside her trousers.

"She's on the phone with lawyers before she told her mom anything", he said, his voice rising regularly in agitation.

The former Temple University employee later crossed out the line in her police statement that said they had lay down in bed together, a point McMonagle also seized upon. Another witness, Kelly Johnson, testified that she was the victim of a similar attack by the comedian in 1996.

The alleged assault that sparked the charges took place in early 2004 after Cosby invited Constand to his home to discuss her career plans.

The comedian has been charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault.

The high-powered attorney also pleaded with jurors to not make Cosby pay for his infidelities.

The 79-year-old entertainer did not take the stand at his trial, but prosecutors used his deposition testimony - given in 2005 and 2006 as part of Constand's civil suit against him - as evidence.

On Monday, he urged the jury to reject the idea that Constand's sexual encounter with Cosby had been consensual.

Jurors in the Bill Cosby trial have entered eighth hour of deliberations.
