Zimmerman Trial: First Full Day For The Defense
Sanford, Fla. -- The George Zimmerman murder trial resumed after a weekend break.
On day 10 the defense has taken advantage of its first full day to present its case.
Friends of the neighborhood watch volunteer listened to the 911 call from the night of the shooting, each claiming it was Zimmerman's voice they heard.
In cross examination, prosectuor Bernie de la Rionda brought up the non-emergency call Zimmerman made about Martin, asking if they thought his language proved ill will and spite - points they must prove for a second degree murder conviction.
After lunch detectives Singleton and Serino were recalled to the stand speaking about the first time Trayvon's father Tracy Martin heard the 911 call.
Martin did not take the stand during the state's case.
The defense then moved to another subject, Zimmerman's former mixed martial arts training.
Gym owner Adam Pollock spoke about Zimmerman's experience from those classes, even demonstrating the pound and ground technique on defense attorney Mark O'Mara.
Pollock told jurors Zimmerman was taking the classes to lose weight, not to become a proficient fighter.
This afternoon Trayvon Martin's father Tracy Martin took the stand about that 911 call, he said he never told officers that it wasn't his son's voice, rather that he couldn't tell whose voice it was.
This evening Judge Debra Nelson ruled that Trayvon Martin's toxicology results will be allowed as evidence.
Martin did have trace amounts of marijuana in his system when he died.
