Here’s what to expect:
Day 5 of jury selection is scheduled to begin Friday morning in the George Zimmerman murder trial.
Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, who was shot and killed in a gated Sanford community last year.
Judge Debra S. Nelson on Thursday announced that the six-person jury, once seated, will be sequestered, meaning they will have limited contact with their families while staying at a hotel and their actions will be monitored by court security outside the courtroom during the duration of the trial.
Nelson estimated that the trial would last 2 to 4 weeks.
Nelson also said that the jury pool must have 40 prospective jurors that pass the pre-publicity qualification before they are questioned further. Currently, about 27 potential jurors will be further questioned.
