Attorneys in the George Zimmerman trial continued the next phase of interviews Thursday in the search of six jurors and four alternates.
On Wednesday, the prosecution questioned 40 potential jurors on their experiences with crime, race and self-defense. Sixteen of the 40 are men and 24 are women. Three are Hispanic, 3 are of mixed race, 7 are black and 27 are white.
Thursday is the defense’s turn. Attorneys are expected to cut 10 out of the 40. They will then select the final 10 out of 30 potential jurors this week. Defense attorney Mark O'Mara said he expected the trial to begin Monday.
Judge Debra Nelson ruled their identities will be kept secret during the trial, and despite media opposition, the jurors will also stay anonymous for an undetermined amount of time after they issue a verdict.
