Trayvon Martin case: Jury enters day two of deliberations

The jury is to enter its second day of deliberations today in the murder trial of a Florida neighbourhood watchman who shot dead Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black 17-year-old last year.

The judge told the six-woman panel to consider whether George Zimmerman acted in self-defence and with justifiable use of deadly force.

Earlier, his lawyer said he had proven his client's pure, unadulterated innocence in Trayvon Martin's death.

But prosecutors said the accused had told a series of lies.

Zimmerman could be acquitted, or convicted of second-degree murder or manslaughter.
