ORLANDO, Florida (AP) -- The second juror to speak publicly about George Zimmerman's trial told ABC News that she feels the neighbourhood watch volunteer got away with murder for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin. But she says there wasn't enough evidence to convict him under Florida law.
Juror B29 told Robin Roberts in an interview made public Thursday that she favoured convicting Zimmerman of second-degree murder when deliberations began. But by the second day of deliberating, she realised there wasn't enough proof to convict Zimmerman of a crime.
Juror B29 is the second juror to go public with what went on during deliberations earlier this month. She allowed her face to be seen and used her first name, Maddy, unlike Juror B37 who was interviewed on CNN last week with her face obscured.
