SANFORD Breaking News: Prosecutor: State Will Rest in Zimmerman Trial
Wochit
Prosecutors say they are resting their case in the murder trial of George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer charged with fatally shooting Trayvon Martin. The mother of Trayvon Martin has testified that screams for help captured on audio of a 911 call came from her 17-year-old son. The mother and brother of Trayvon Martin testified that screams for help captured on audio of a 911 call came from the 17-year-old. After the mother and brother testified, the doctor who performed an autopsy on Martin took the witness stand. He started describing Martin as being in pain and suffering after he was shot, but defense attorneys objected. The judge sustained the objection, and Bao was directed away from that line of questioning. He later estimated that Martin lived from one to 10 minutes after he was shot, and the bullet went from the front to the back of the teen's chest, piercing his heart. "There was no chance he could survive," Bao said.
