SANFORD, Fla. -- The jury deciding George Zimmerman's fate has several options to consider.

Second-Degree Murder
Prosecutors must prove Zimmerman killed Martin and had malice toward or disliked him.
If Zimmerman convicted of second-degree murder, he could be sentenced to life in prison.

Prosecutors must prove Zimmerman committed an act that caused death.
If Zimmerman is convicted of manslaughter, he could be sentenced to a maximum of 30 years in prison.

An acquittal would mean Zimmerman would be released at the conclusion of court.
