Today, July 3rd, is Day 18 of the Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman trial, which will include witness testimony from the prosecution.
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:
A medical examiner who reviewed video and photographs of George Zimmerman’s injuries suffered during his fatal confrontation with Trayvon Martin called the neighborhood watch captain’s wounds “insignificant” and “non-life threatening.”
Dr. Valerie Rao testified that Zimmerman was struck as few as three times by Martin during the fight that night. She also asserted his head may have only been slammed on the concrete a single time. Zimmerman, who faces second-degree murder charges for the death of the unarmed teenager, said Martin repeatedly slammed his head on the concrete.
“Are the injuries on the back of the defendant’s head consistent with one strike against a concrete surface?” asked prosecutor John Guy
“Yes,” Rao said.
“And why do you say that?” asked Guy
“Because if you hit the head one time, it is consistent with having gotten those two injuries at that one time,” she testified.
Rao’s testimony could contradict Zimmerman’s assertion that he was involved in a potentially life-threatening struggle with the Florida teenager.
