SANFORD, Fla. --The jury will not be able to consider a lesser offense of third-degree murder as they weigh the fate of accused murderer George Zimmerman, a judge ruled Thursday.
Looks like just the 2nd degree murder and the manslaughter charges. I'm not a criminal defense attorney but my memory is that manslaughter is pretty typically given as a lesser included option in murder trials.
