SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — In some versions of a story July 11 and July 12 about George Zimmerman's murder trial, The Associated Press erroneously reported the maximum prison sentence that Zimmerman could face if convicted of manslaughter. It is 30 years in prison, not life in prison.

A corrected version of the story is below:

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — A Florida jury is deliberating in the murder trial of neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, who fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin last year. Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder, but the jury will also be allowed to consider manslaughter. He faces a maximum prison sentence of life on the second-degree murder charge and 30 years if convicted of manslaughter.
