SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — After three days of trying to seat a jury in Florida, prosecutors and attorneys for George Zimmerman have interviewed two dozen potential jurors but are still 10 short of being able to enter the next round of questioning.

Attorneys enter the fourth day of questioning jury candidates Thursday about what media stories they had been exposed to about the neighborhood watch volunteer's fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin during an altercation in a gated community last year.

At the start of questioning Thursday, 20 potential jurors were in the pool of candidates to be interviewed in the next round. They need 30 potential jurors to get past the initial round of interviews so they can ask them more in-depth questions about their views and life experiences.
