SANFORD, Fla. (AP) - Potential jurors have been filling out a questionnaire, as the trial of George Zimmerman gets underway near Orlando, Fla.

He'll be claiming that he feared for his life when he shot and killed unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin in February of last year.

Martin's father told reporters today that he's looking for a "fair and impartial trial."

The judge today denied a defense request to delay the start of the trial. Defense attorney Mark O'Mara says the defense needs several more weeks to prepare.
