SANFORD, Fla. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) – A verdict has been reached in the murder trial of George Zimmerman. The jury has found Zimmerman not guilty in the death of Trayvon Martin. 

The six-member, all-woman jury deliberated for 16½ hours total, including 13 on Saturday alone.

Zimmerman was charged with second-degree murder in Trayvon Martin's death, but jurors could have also chosen manslaughter. Zimmerman claims he shot Martin in self-defense.

Earlier in the day, they asked the court for clarification on its instructions regarding manslaughter.  The jury couldn't have even posed such a query a few days ago: Judge Nelson ruled Thursday, over the defense's vehement objection, to include manslaughter as an option for jurors, in addition to a second-degree murder charge.
