Judge denies Zimmerman gag order

SANFORD, FL (WFLX) - A Florida judge has denied prosecutors' request for a gag order in the George Zimmerman's trial.

The judge says there's no need for a gag order at this time to ensure Zimmerman a fair trial.

He's charged with second-degree murder in the Trayvon Martin shooting last February. Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty and claims the shooting was self-defense under the state's "stand your ground" law.
