Zimmerman says he prays for Martin's parents

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) -- George Zimmerman says he prays daily for the parents of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in the teenager's shooting death.

Fox News host Sean Hannity interviewed Zimmerman Wednesday, and the segment is scheduled to air at 9 p.m.

In an excerpt provided early to affiliates, Zimmerman said about Martin's parents, "My wife and I don't have any children... I love my children even though they aren't born yet, and I am sorry that they buried their child. I can't imagine what it must feel like, and I pray for them daily."

Zimmerman claims he was defending himself when he shot and killed the unarmed Martin on Feb. 26 in a central Florida neighborhood.

His attorney says he agreed to the interview because he's hoping to receive donations to Zimmerman's defense fund.
