Today, Rachel “Dee Dee” Jeantel will return to the stand to continue with The defense’s cross-examination about her role as the last person to speak with Trayvon before he was killed by George Zimmerman on 2/26/2013. Here’s her testimony from yesterday:
One of the prosecution’s most important witnesses in the Trayvon Martin murder case will face a second round of pointed defense questioning Thursday about what she heard while on the phone with the teen right before he was killed.
Rachel Jeantel testified Wednesday that her friend’s last words were “Get off! Get off!” before the phone went silent.
Several times during her testimony Wednesday afternoon, prosecutors, the court secretary and defense attorneys for George Zimmerman, who fatally shot the teen, asked the soft-spoken Jeantel to speak louder and repeat answers. The 19-year-old high schooler, dressed all in black, edged closer and closer to the microphone to try to make herself understood.
Jeantel’s testimony is considered important to the state’s case because she was the last person to talk to Martin before his encounter with Zimmerman on Feb. 26, 2012.
