George Zimmerman

Defense wants Trayvon Martin’s girlfriend to surrender voice recordings of slain teen


Attorneys for George Zimmerman asked a judge Monday to order a female witness, commonly referred to as Trayvon Martin’s girlfriend, to hand over all voice recordings of Trayvon Martin in her possession from 2010-2012.

The 18-year-old woman, identified as “witness 8” in court documents, told authorities that she was on the phone with Trayvon several times the day he was killed, including just before his encounter with Zimmerman, 29, that left him fatally shot.

Mark O’Mara, lead defense counsel for Zimmerman, believes this woman is the most important witness for the state.

According to an interview conducted for ABC News by an attorney for Trayvon Martin’s family, she said she heard Trayvon confront a man and ask “What are you following me for?” After which she said she heard the man respond, “What are you doing around here?”

Zimmerman is charged with second degree murder in the death of the unarmed 17-year-old African American teenager. Authorities allege that the Neighborhood Watch volunteer profiled Trayvon, followed him, and believing he was about to commit a crime, shot and killed him.

Zimmerman claims he was acting in self-defense and that he is protected under Florida’s “stand your ground” laws.

I’m impressed, I need to say. Honestly rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is some thing that not sufficient folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m fairly happy that I stumbled across this in my search for some thing relating to this.
