SANFORD, Fla. (AP) -- The judge presiding over George Zimmerman's second-degree murder trial has asked four more potential jurors to return for further questioning.

Judge Debra Nelson on Monday asked the candidates to come back Wednesday morning.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys are seeking a pool of 40 potential jurors who have been screened for any influence of pretrial publicity before moving to a second round of questioning. They must agree on six jurors and four alternates to hear the case.

The number of potential jurors asked to return now stands at 32.

Zimmerman is pleading not guilty to murdering unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, saying he acted in self-defense.
