Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in February. The 29-year-old has claimed self-defense and is pleading not guilty.

Attorney Mark O'Mara estimated he expects the trial to last three weeks.

They'll be back in court Friday for what is expected to be a lengthy hearing for arguments on several motions, including the defense asking for more time to interview state witnesses.
