SANFORD, Fla. - A second-degree murder case that's drawn worldwide attention begins in a Sanford, Fla., courtroom today.

Jury selection starts in the trial of former neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman, who in February 2012 shot to death 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman says he feared for his life and the shooting was in self-defense.

The prosecution says the black teen was racially profiled.
