Key Moments in the George Zimmerman Trial

See also

The George Zimmerman trial, one of the most watched cases in 2013, will come to an end soon. Zimmerman is charged with second degree murder for killing Trayvon Martin on Feb 26, 2012. He could be sentenced to 25 years to life if convicted of that charge. There have been some key moments of the trial over the past weeks.

One of the key moments of the trial was identifying whose voice was screaming for help on the 911 call. Both mothers of Martin and Zimmerman testified that the screams on the 911 call was their son's voice. They were emotional as the 911 call was played in the courtroom.

The defense asked the judge to acquit Zimmerman claiming the prosecutors didn't prove their case which was another significant part of the trial. The judge denied the request.

The medical examiner told jurors that Martin was alive from one to 10 minutes after he was shot and it was possible that he could have moved. That is important because Martin's arms are positioned differently in a photo than the way Zimmerman described it. This evidence could effect the credibility of Zimmerman's testimony.
