SANFORD, Fla. - Trayvon Martin's mother is asking for members of the public to pray for her family as opening statements begin in the trial of the neighborhood watch volunteer charged with fatally shooting her son.

Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, said Monday that she didn't want any other mothers to have to go through what she is experiencing. She spoke just minutes before opening statements were set to start in George Zimmerman's second-degree murder trial.

Zimmerman is pleading not guilty, claiming self-defense.
