eorge Zimmerman, the Florida neighborhood watchman who shot and killed black, unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin in February, and who is charged with second degree murder, will likely not go on trial until early 2013, his lawyers say. A proceeding that was scheduled Wednesday was pushed back until Oct. 3, making it more unlikely that an official trial would start this year. Zimmerman has admitted to shooting Martin, but says he did so in self defense after the teen attacked him. The 28-year-old claims his actions were justified under Florida's "stand your ground" law, which allow the use of deadly force for self defense.
