After an intense two-week selection process, lawyers settled on Thursday on the jurors that will decide the fate of George Zimmerman, accused in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin in Florida.
They agreed on an all-female jury.
Of the six jurors chosen to preside over the trial, five are white women, and one is Hispanic. Prosecutors and defense attorneys chose the panel Thursday for Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer who said he shot an unarmed black teenager, Martin, in self-defense.
Prosecutors and defense attorneys chose the panel of six jurors after almost two weeks of jury selection. The six jurors were culled from a pool of 40 jury candidates who made it into a second round of jury questioning.
In Florida, 12 jurors are required only for criminal trials involving capital cases, when the death penalty is considered.
Of the six women chosen, five are mothers, including the lone minority juror who is described as a Hispanic mother in her 30s, married with eight children ranging in age from young to teenagers.
The mother recently moved from Chicago, works in a dementia/Alzeimer's home, and only watches reality television shows -- not news.
Four of the remaining five white jurors are in their 50' to late 60s. The other white juror is in her 30s and works in financial services.
Prosecutors have said Zimmerman, 29, racially profiled the 17-year-old Martin as he walked back from a convenience store on Feb. 26, 2012, in the rain, wearing a dark hooded shirt.
All six women will be sequestered, cut off from the outside world, for two to four weeks, if not more.
Opening deliberations will begin Monday morning.
Martin's shooting death and the initial decision not to charge Zimmerman led to public outrage and demonstrations around the nation, with some accusing Sanford police of failing to thoroughly investigate the shooting.
Before selecting the jurors on Thursday, defense attorney Mark O'Mara explored potential jurors' views on whether they thought sympathy should play a role in deciding a case.
Juror B-72, a young Hispanic man, said he wasn't affected by sympathetic people because he's never had many close relationships.
"So when a person might seem sympathetic, to me it's indifferent," he said.
O'Mara also asked the jurors about when they thought self-defense could be used. Juror H-6, a white man in his 30s, said he thought deadly force could be warranted if a person feels danger.
"I feel that if you're somewhere you're supposed to be and allowed to be, you should have the right to defend yourself," he said.
O'Mara met resistance from the judge when he tried to characterize the definition for justifiable use of deadly force.
Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda objected multiple times during O'Mara's line of questioning, eventually leading to Judge Debra Nelson to twice read what will be the jury instruction once the final jury is selection.
"I don't want either side to give an interpretation on the law," Nelson said.
O'Mara said screening the prospective jurors for any biases or prejudices "is probably as critical if not more critical than the evidence."
"If you bring that into the courtroom, then what we can't get is a fair verdict," he said.
