SANFORD, Fla., June 12 (UPI) -- The potential jurors in George Zimmerman's second-degree murder case Wednesday in Sanford, Fla., included a woman who said she visited his fundraising website.

The potential juror, identified as B-61 and described by the Orlando Sentinel as "a young white woman," was the first to admit in court she had seen Zimmerman's website, which solicits money to defend him in the Feb. 26, 2012, shooting death of Trayvon Martin, 17.

She said she did not make a donation, but "thought it [the website] was interesting" because she had never heard of a defendant seeking donations in such a way.

Zimmerman, who contends he killed the unarmed teenager in self-defense, attended court Wednesday, the third day of jury selection, the newspaper said.
