A Florida jury interrupted deliberations on the fate of George Zimmerman for the shooting death of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin to ask a question about manslaughter. The lawyer for an employee of the Office of the State Attorney in Jacksonville, Florida. told NBC News that his client, who testified that prosecutors withheld evidence from George Zimmerman's defense team has been fired. Jurors deliberated for a second day in George Zimmerman's murder trial, after over three weeks, of hearing dueling portraits of the neighborhood watch captain: a cop wannabe who took the law into his own hands or a well-meaning volunteer who shot Martin because he feared for his life.
