Here’s what to expect:
Several motions will be heard today in a Seminole County courtroom as George Zimmerman’s murder trial is set to begin next month.
Attorneys will discuss a possible trial delay and what can be said about Trayvon Martin during the trial. Zimmerman is charged with second degree murder in the shooting death of Martin during a confrontation at a gated community in Sanford last year.
Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara filed a motion Thursday to delay the trial approximately four to six weeks.
O’Mara said he needs more time to deal with recent evidence issues. He said prosecutors have experts and discovery that just came out that O’Mara said he should have learned about a few months ago.
The judge will also hear a motion on whether Martin’s school suspension and marijuana use can be used as evidence in the trial.
The defense team also filed a motion last week, calling out prosecution experts who are set to testify about 911 calls made the night of the shooting. The judge will consider whether a voice analyzer can be called by prosecutors to determine who was making cries for help on 911 calls.
That motion followed one filed by the prosecution, asking the court to ban evidence related to computerized voice stress analysis tests, which State Attorney Bernie de la Rionda calls unreliable.
Prosecutors, meanwhile, renewed a request to stop the defense from talking to the media or posting evidence about the case so that the media can see it. They said it will be difficult to find jurors not influenced by media accounts.
