Request to delay trial denied

George Zimmerman arrives for a hearing in Seminole circuit court, in Sanford, Fla. Zimmerman's attorneys presented a motion Tuesday asking Judge Debra Nelson to push the trial from mid-June back to November, but she denied the defense request to delay the trial. Zimmerman is accused of shooting Florida teenager Trayvon Martin last year. He has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder charges.
