5:31 pm
what happened a year and a half ago when george zimmerman shot trayvon martin. those six jurors will write the final chapter in the long debate and abc's matt gutman is on the scene where he has been since the beginning. he joins us from florida. matt? >> reporter: diane, the six jurors wrapped tonight. they are deciding the case. they asked for a list of all the evidence, a clear sign of how very seriously they are taking this. tonight, zimmerman's fate is in the hands of the jury. the six female jurors -- all but one, mothers -- asking the judge late today for a list of all the evidence. the last word in the trial was from the prosecution. >> to the living, we owe respect. to the dead, we owe the truth. >> reporter: john guy,
5:32 pm
mesmerizing the jury. his voice alternately soaring, and whispering. >> not being able to ask trayvon martin to step forward to put my hand on his shoulder. man, i would love to do that. >> reporter: casting this as a historic choice. >> your verdict won't change the past, but will forever define it. >> reporter: telling them zimmerman's claim of self defense is a lie, and the responsibility for the shooting began when he left his car and started following 17-year-old trayvon martin. >> this case is not about standing your ground. it's about staying in your car. >> reporter: zimmerman's attorney, mark o'mara, started his closing by introducing george zimmerman. >> you might have an impression of him because he's sitting at the defense table. >> reporter: other than that moment, zimmerman sat pensively during the proceedings. repeatedly wiping his brow. o'mara insisting the state offered no proof the 29-year-old former watchman murdered martin. >> you want to take away somebody's liberty, they got to prove their case.
5:33 pm
the burden is on the state. >> reporter: pressing the case against martin, hauling in a huge block of cement to show his client had to shoot in self defense when martin pounded his head into the pavement. >> that's cement. that is a sidewalk. and that is not an unarmed teenager with nothing but skittles trying to get home. >> reporter: and when the jury comes back tomorrow, we are told the judge is going to give them all the leeway and time they need. now, during their discussions and after their discussions, the jury is going to be given this, it's called a verdict form. they can fill all all the thing, among them? second degree murder, manslaughter or a not guilty plea for george zimmerman. diane? >> so much at stake. let's bring in "nightline" anchor dan abrams. take us in the jury room. what do they tend to do first a
5:34 pm
murder trial? >> one of two things. either they take a vote to see where everyone stands in the outset. or they won't and they go through the evidence methodically, and review everything and then maybe have the first vote. >> and how rare is it to have a jury of all one sex, male or female? >> it's rare to have a jury of all women. very rare in a case like this. and it's rare to have a jury of six people. florida is some what unique in that regard. if it's not a capital case, you can have six people in a criminal case. most you only see that in a civil case. >> do you want to go on a limb and say how long it's going to take? >> if it's not split, i expect a verdict tomorrow afternoon. >> tomorrow, as soon as tomorrow? >> absolutely. i think this is a pretty straightforward case. it hasn't been that long of a case and you only have six jurors.

snowden spoke and then was interrupted by a passengers announcement. >> i heard this many times. >> reporter: snowden said that he acted outside the law and made it impossible for him to travel outside of america. and so, snowden said, he wanted help getting temporary asylum from russia. >> he cannot say here indefinitely. there has to be a resolution. >> reporter: now with his u.s. passport cancelled and on the no fly list, he appears to be corners in check in this real life game of chess, diane. >> so it's back to the airport. >> exactly right. now, late breaking news to report tonight about the crash landing in san francisco. word that a third victim has died, another young woman. we are also learning more about what happened to one of the two original victims, a teenage girl hit by rescue workers in a fire

5:39 pm
>> reporter: the u.n., adults and children alike, captivated. her mother wiping away tears. her father beaming. >> i am the only person who can have her as a daughter. she is owned by everybody. >> reporter: she is the daughter of the world. >> she is the daughter of the world. >> one child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world. >> reporter: since she has become a worldwide symbol, she has won many awards. in fact, she has gotten -- became the youngest person ever nominated for a nobel peace prize. that decision is in october. and she is certainly qualified. >> oh, i hope she wins a nobel prize. who else? >> go to and get the fund information. >> we talk about how extraordinary she is. and we want everyone to know show will be telling her life
