Court struggles to find jury for murder trial
Lawyers in the trial of a US man in the fatal shooting of a black teenager are struggling to find jury members who haven't already heard about the high-profile case.
George Zimmerman, a Hispanic neighbourhood-watch volunteer, is pleading not guilty to a second-degree murder charge that could carry a life sentence. He says he shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in self-defence in February 2012 in his gated community.
A 44-day delay in Zimmerman's arrest led to protests around the United States.
One juror told attorneys they're going to have a hard time finding jurors who haven't heard about the case and can only hope they find residents who can keep an open mind.
