The jury in the George Zimmerman trial began deliberating for a second day Saturday morning with no indication of how long they might take to reach a verdict in the death of Trayvon Martin.

According to an NBC News report, There has been only one communication from the six women on the panel since they were handed the case Friday afternoon: a request for a number list of all the evidence with descriptions.

After three and a half hours of deliberations on Friday, jurors asked to break for the night and start talking again in the morning.

They have been asked to decide if Zimmerman – who says he shot Martin in self-defense -- is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt of second-degree murder or manslaughter or not guilty of both charges.
