AP II, Sec. 30 Duty of jury and officer after submission; causes for discharge of jury; procedure for rendering verdict
(1) When the case is finally submitted to the jury, they shall retire for deliberation. When they retire, they shall be kept together in some convenient place, under the charge of an officer, until they agree upon a verdict or are discharged by the court, subject to the Supreme Court rules permitting them to separate temporarily at night and for their meals. The officer having them under his or her charge shall not allow any communications to be made to them, nor make any communications himself or herself to them, except to ask them if they have agreed upon their verdict, unless by order of the court; and the officer shall not, before their verdict is rendered, communicate to any person the state of their deliberations, or the verdict agreed upon.
(2) (a) The jury may be discharged by the court on account of the sickness of a juror, or other accident, calamity or circumstances requiring their discharge; or, by consent of both parties; or, after they have been kept together until it satisfactorily appears that there is no probability of their agreeing.
