(Newser) – George Zimmerman's six-person jury is finally in place, and two things stand out: All six are women, and none of them are black. Five of the jurors are white, and one is Hispanic, reports the Orlando Sentinel. It says all but one are middle-aged or older. Alternates are still being picked. The trial into whether Zimmerman was justified in fatally shooting Trayvon Martin is expected to take up to a month, and jurors will be sequestered the entire time.
