Jury stops deliberating for night

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) - Jurors in the George Zimmerman murder trial have stopped deliberating and will return Saturday morning to resume their discussions.

Jurors told the judge Friday they wanted to break for the night and return the next day to talk about whether Zimmerman committed second-degree murder when he fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Jurors deliberated for three and a half hours when they decided to stop. About two hours into their discussions, they asked for a list of the evidence.

Zimmerman claims he shot Martin in self-defense last year.
