Lawyers in Florida's Trayvon Martin murder case selected a six-member, all-female jury on Thursday to try the high-profile case against former neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman.

The jurors, selected from a final pool of 40, will decide the fate of Zimmerman, who triggered a national debate about guns, race and equal justice before the law when he shot and killed Martin, an unarmed black teenager, in a gated community in central Florida in February 2012.
