Today, July 10th, is Day 22 of the Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman trial, which will include witness testimony from the Defense.
The trial is scheduled to begin at 8:00 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:
George Zimmerman’s attorneys are finishing up their defense of the Florida neighborhood watch volunteer charged with killing Trayvon Martin, though the judge first must rule on two requests by defense attorneys.
Zimmerman, so far, hasn’t testified. But jurors saw repeated video recordings of Zimmerman telling his side of the story to police investigators. The defense started its case last Friday. If it keeps to the schedule anticipated by defense attorney Mark O’Mara, its presentation will take about half of the time of the prosecution and call on about half as many witnesses.
Judge Debra Nelson still has to decide on two requests by the defense. One is whether to allow jurors to view an animation that depicts Zimmerman’s fight with Martin, the teenager killed in a gated community in Sanford, Fla., last year. The second issue is whether she will allow Martin’s text messages that purportedly deal with fighting. The judge said she would rule on both matters Wednesday.
