SANFORD, Fla. -

The neighborhood watch volunteer charged with fatally shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin wants the jury at his murder trial to be sequestered.

George Zimmerman's attorney filed a motion Thursday asking that jurors be kept in isolation during the trial and that their names and other personal information remain confidential because of the attention the case has received.

Defense attorney Mark O'Mara also filed a motion asking that jurors be allowed to inspect the gated community in Sanford where Zimmerman fatally shot Martin during a confrontation last year.

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder. He has pleaded not guilty, claiming self-defense. His trial starts next month.
