SANFORD, Fla. (AP) - Nearly two dozen potential jurors interviewed individually by prosecutors and George Zimmerman's defense attorneys during the past week have been told to return to a Florida courthouse next week for further questioning.
   
Judge Debra Nelson told the 23 jury candidates on Friday, the fifth day of jury selection, to return next Tuesday. She asked them not to discuss the case or selection process with anyone.
   
Zimmerman is pleading not guilty to second-degree murder, claiming he shot an unarmed Trayvon Martin in self-defense last year.
   
Attorneys need to find six jurors and four alternates.
