TAMPA (FOX 13) -

The second juror to speak publicly about George Zimmerman's trial tells ABC News that she feels the neighborhood watch volunteer got away with murder for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin. But she says there wasn't enough evidence to convict him under Florida law.

Juror B29 told Robin Roberts in an interview made public Thursday that she favored convicting Zimmerman of second-degree murder when deliberations began. But by the second day of deliberating, she realized there wasn't enough proof to convict Zimmerman of a crime.

The juror showed her face during the interview, but only gave a first name of "Maddy."

According to ABC News, she is a nursing assistant and a mother of eight children who had moved to Seminole County from Chicago five months before the trial. She is Puerto Rican, and was the only minority to deliberate in the racially charged case, ABC reported.

"Maddy" is the second juror to go public with what went on during deliberations earlier this month. She allowed her face to be seen, unlike JurorB37 who was interviewed on CNN  with her face obscured.
