Prosecutor John Guy argued that Zimmerman repeatedly lied about the shooting of the unarmed 17-year-old Martin.

His rebuttal came after defense attorney Mark O’Mara said prosecutors had failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman committed second-degree murder.

Jurors are taking a lunch break, and when they return Judge Debra Nelson will read them jury instructions.

The six jurors will then begin deliberations.
