On Tuesday afternoon, the jury returned to the courtroom briefly to ask Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood about the rape charges against Coleman.
They asked the judge if each count pertained to a different individual.
The judge told them that the different charges were for the different methods in which Channon Christian was raped - anally, orally and sexually.
The jury said that Judge Blackwood had answered their question and continued deliberations.
Coleman was initially charged for her role in the crimes against Christian's boyfriend Chris Newsom, but was acquitted during her original trial.
Because of double jeopardy laws, she was not tried again for any crimes against Newsom in the latest trial.
On Monday, attorneys wrapped up five days of testimony in the case. Jurors heard from friends and family of Coleman, as well as an extensive list of law enforcement officials and experts that played a role in the investigation.
