SANFORD, Fla. (AP) - Jurors have returned to deliberating whether George Zimmerman committed a crime when he fatally shot Trayvon Martin.

The six female jurors took an hour lunch break and returned to their discussions at 1 p.m. Saturday.

The jurors deliberated for three hours before breaking for lunch.

On Friday afternoon, they deliberated three and a half hours before leaving for the day.

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder, but jurors also have the option of convicting him of manslaughter.

He is pleading not guilty, claiming he shot 17-year-old Martin in self-defense.

About two dozen people gathered outside the courthouse awaiting a verdict Saturday, with supporters of the Martin family outnumbering those there for Zimmerman.
