SANFORD, Fla. (AP) -- Attorneys trying to pick a jury in George Zimmerman's murder trial have selected a pool of 40 potential jurors who will go on to a second round of questioning.

The pool was whittled down Tuesday on the seventh day of jury selection for the neighborhood watch volunteer charged with fatally shooting Trayvon Martin.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys had been questioning jurors about their exposure to media coverage of the case. They will now be able to ask those invited to the next round more detailed questions about how they feel about the case.

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder. He is pleading not guilty.
