Zimmerman Jury Resumes Deliberation on Saturday Morning

The jury deliberated for over three hours on Friday before they adjourned at about 6 p.m. Before they left for the evening, the jury requested a list of the evidence presented by both sides. They resumed deliberation promptly at 9 a.m. on Saturday. Zimmerman could be found guilty of second-degree murder or manslaughter, or he could be acquitted.

According to ABC News Chief Legal Affairs Analyst, Dan Abrams, the jury is likely to find Zimmerman guilty if they base their decision on emotion, whereas a verdict based on the "letter of the law" is more likely to result in an acquittal.

A verdict, which must be unanimous amongst the six female jurors, could be reached as early as Saturday afternoon.
