Zimmerman jury pool narrowed down to 40

The Florida judge in the George Zimmerman murder trial narrowed today the pool of potential jurors down to 40.

According to the Orlando Sun Sentinel:

22 jurors are white, 6 are black, 2 are hispanic, 1 identifies as mixed race and 9 are not racially identified. The 24 women and 16 men skew middle-aged.

Zimmerman, who identities himself as Hispanic, admitted to shooting black teen Trayvon Martin last year in self-defense and has pleaded not guilty.
