SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — George Zimmerman hasn't made up his mind on whether he will testify at his second-degree murder trial.

When asked by the judge Wednesday, Zimmerman said he hoped to make a decision by the end of the day.

Defense attorney Don West objected several times to the judge's asking if Zimmerman would testify. But the judge overruled him.

Jurors were out of the courtroom.

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder. He is pleading not guilty, claiming he fatally shot Trayvon Martin in self-defense.

Jurors already have heard of Zimmerman's account from recorded police interviews played in the courtroom.
