Jurors deciding whether George Zimmerman committed a crime when he fatally shot Trayvon Martin have asked for clarification on the charge of manslaughter – a possible indication they were considering the lesser charge instead of second-degree murder. 
    
They also asked for dinner, an apparent sign they planned to deliberate for at least an hour or more beyond the eight hours they already had put in during their second day.
    
Zimmerman is pleading not guilty to second-degree murder. He claims he shot the 17-year-old Martin in self-defense.
    
The jury has the option of considering the lesser charge of manslaughter.
    
The six female jurors began deliberating Friday afternoon.
