Lawyers are requesting to question friend who was on the phone with the 17-year-old before his death.
George Zimmerman, the accused murderer, had plead not guilty and said he was acting in self-defense. But Martin's friend described his voice growing in fear as he was being followed by the neighborhood watchman.
The Associated Press reports:
George Zimmerman's lead attorney, Mark O'Mara, will present a motion to the judge on Friday asking to question the woman known as Witness 8.
Described as a friend of the 17-year-old Martin, she originally recounted the conversation she had with him to attorney Benjamin Crump in a recorded phone interview. Crump is representing Martin's parents.
O'Mara also wants a deposition from Crump regarding that interview. Crump has previously submitted an affidavit, citing a formal deposition could jeopardize attorney-client privilege.
The trial is set for June.
