Today, June 10th marks the official start of the Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman trial.
The trial is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. Eastern this morning. We’ll bring you updates as they become available. Also, be sure to check the end of this article, our trial updates page, the Axiom Amnesia Facebook page and Twitter feed for live blogs and discussions on the trial.
Here’s what to expect:
Jury selection is scheduled to get underway Monday for George Zimmerman who is charged with second degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
During the trial Zimmerman’s attorney will try to convince jurors that his client didn’t murder Martin. Instead, he needs to show why Zimmerman felt threatened by the African-American teen while avoiding the appearance that either he or his client is racist.
There is no dispute that Zimmerman shot Martin, 17, during a fight on a rainy night in February 2012. To win an acquittal Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara must convince the jury that Zimmerman pulled his 9 mm handgun and fired a bullet into the Miami-area high school student’s chest because he feared for his life and that the fear was caused by Martin’s actions, not his race.
