Zimmerman Jury Adjourns; Returns Saturday for Deliberations

Jul 12, 2013 3:48 PM

A Florida jury has gone home for the day. The Jury will resume deliberations Saturday in the George Zimmerman murder trial.

The six woman jury began their deliberations around 2:30 p.m. Friday, after Judge Debra Nelson read a lengthy list of instructions. They have three options: convict Zimmerman of second-degree murder in Trayvon Martin's death, convict him of manslaughter or find him not guilty. The judge approved the manslaughter option on Thursday, over the defense's vehement objection.

Zimmerman, 29, was accused of second-degree murder for killing the 17-year-old Miami teenager on February 26, 2012, in a Sanford, Florida, neighborhood. He has always acknowledged killing Martin. The question has been why.
