Jury Takes Break, Asks For Clarification
SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — Jurors in the George Zimmerman trial have a question about the charge of manslaughter.
The jurors sent the judge a note asking for clarification on the charge after deliberating for about eight hours Saturday.
The six female jurors began deliberating Friday afternoon on whether Zimmerman committed a crime when he fatally shot Trayvon Martin.
Zimmerman is pleading not guilty to second-degree murder. He claims he shot the 17-year-old Martin in self-defense.
Jurors have the option of considering manslaughter.
