The jury in the George Zimmerman second-degree murder trial will be allowed to consider the lesser charge of manslaughter, the judge ruled Thursday.

The ruling came after the prosecution sought to include two lesser charges from the original murder in the second degree: manslaughter and felony murder in the third degree with child abuse as the underlying felony.

The charges stem from the Feb. 26, 2012, killing of Trayvon Martin, 17, in a gated community in Sanford, Fla.

The prosecution’s request represented a slight shift from Wednesday, when the state had stated it would also ask for aggravated assault as lesser charge.
