SANFORD, Fla. (AP) - The jury in the George Zimmerman trial will be sequestered.
   
A Florida judge told a jury candidate Thursday that the six jurors and four alternates eventually picked to hear the second-degree murder case will be kept in isolation during the two to four weeks that it will last.
   
It was the first time Judge Debra Nelson has weighed in on whether jurors will be sequestered.
   
During the first four days of jury selection, attorneys have asked potential jurors about the hardships they would face if they were kept away from their families during the trial.
   
Zimmerman is pleading not guilty to second-degree murder. He claims he shot Trayvon Martin in self-defense.
