Zimmerman Jury Begins Day 2



Jurors deciding the fate of George Zimmerman returned to court and resumed deliberations this morning.

The jurors entered the courtroom briefly Saturday and were quickly dismissed by Judge Debra Nelson.

"All of the evidence will be back there with you," Nelson said, referring to the jury room and a request Friday by jurors to see an inventory of all the evidence in the case.

The six-woman jury has the option of acquitting Zimmerman or convicting him of second-degree murder or manslaughter in the death of Trayvon Martin. Jurors began weighing evidence against Zimmerman Friday and recessed after three and a half hours.

Zimmerman, 29, a former neighborhood watch volunteer, said he shot Trayvon, 17, in self-defense after being attacked. State prosecutors, however, claim Zimmerman profiled, followed and murdered the teen on Feb. 26, 2012.
