"I pray for them daily," the suspect says about the parents of Trayvon Martin, the teenager he killed five months ago.

In George Zimmerman's first TV interview, the neighborhood-watch volunteer apologizes to the parents of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed Florida teenager he shot and killed Feb. 26, setting off a media firestorm.

"I'm sorry," Zimmerman tells Sean Hannity after he is asked what he'd like to say to Martin's parents.

Part 1 of the interview runs Wednesday at 9 p.m. Eastern on Hannity on the Fox News Channel and  part 2 runs tomorrow.

In a short clip provided by Fox News, Zimmerman continues:

"My wife and I don't have any children. I have nephews that I love more than life. I love them more than myself.... 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."

Fox on Wednesday showed a promo of the interview during The Five, the show that replaced Glenn Beck's 5 p.m. show and recently celebrated its one-year anniversary.

Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara, also participated in the interview. Watch the clip below.
