Juror: Zimmerman jury was initially split

Posted:

MIAMI (WKOW) – One of the jurors in George Zimmerman's murder trial is speaking out about what went on behind closed doors in the court room.

The woman, known as Juror B37, told CNN's Anderson Cooper on Monday that when the jury began deliberations on Friday, three jurors, including B37, were in favor of acquittal, two supported manslaughter and one backed second-degree murder.

After hours of deliberation, the six-woman jury ultimately voted to acquit Zimmerman in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Juror B37 says, "I think he's guilty of not using good judgment.  I think his heart was in the right place.  It just went terribly wrong."
