Five Key Moments From Second Week of Zimmerman Trial
State Rests, Acquittal Denied
After presenting more than three dozen witnesses over two weeks, prosecutors rested their case Friday. They called as witnesses police investigators, Martin's mother and brother, medical examiners, neighbors who heard the struggle, and a friend of Martin's who was the last person to talk to him by telephone before his confrontation with Zimmerman. As is typical after the prosecution rests, the defense asked Judge Debra Nelson to acquit Zimmerman, claiming prosecutors' didn't prove their case. The judge denied the request.
