The anonymously chosen jury will be sequestered until it reaches a decision. The trial included eight weeks of testimony and two days of closing arguments.
Shain and Drita Duka, a third brother, Eljvir, Serdar Tatar and Ibrahim Shnewer are on trial in federal court in Camden, N.J., on charges that include attempted murder and conspiracy to kill military personnel.
Defense attorneys argued the men were angry at the U.S. government, but the government misinterpreted their actions.
"You have the opportunity to correct that mistake," defense attorney Michael Huff said in his closing argument.
In his closing, Deputy U.S. Attorney William Fitzpatrick said the defendants' words and deeds "cry out for guilty verdicts."
