Elimination begins for potential Zimmerman jurors

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — Attorneys in the George Zimmerman case are in the homestretch of picking a jury for his second-degree murder trial.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys today began striking candidates they don’t want on the jury.

They are working from a pool of 40 candidates who made it through a second round of questioning.

Zimmerman fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin last year in Sanford, Fla. He is pleading not guilty, claiming self-defense.

Martin’s shooting death and the initial decision not to charge Zimmerman led to public outrage and demonstrations around the nation, with some accusing Sanford police of failing to thoroughly investigate the shooting.
