Zimmerman Jury Will Be All Women

After more than a week of intense scrutiny, a jury has been selected for the trial of George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. In a surprising twist, an all-women jury will serve in the second-degree murder trial. Five of the selected women are white, and one is Hispanic. The state tried to strike at least two of the women, the Orlando Sentinel reports, but was denied. The trial is expected to last two to four weeks, and jurors will be sequestered throughout it.
