SANFORD – Jury selection began this morning for the second-degree murder trial of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
This morning, about 100 potential jurors filled out questionnaires. Based on their responses, some are being called into court individually for additional questioning.
The first juror called this afternoon, identified as juror B-12, said she saw television news reports about the case when it first began, but hasn’t followed it since and hasn’t formed an opinion.
