Zimmerman Trial: Trayvon Martin's Father Testifies
Sanford, Fla. -- A slow start this morning as court was in recess until after 10 am.
A hearing over whether a new piece of evidence could be allowed for the defense was supposed to take about 30 minutes and instead lasted two hours.
The defense wanted to introduce a computer animation of Zimmerman's account of the fight as evidence.
After a much longer testimony than origianlly planned, judge Debra Nelson decided that decision will come later this afternoon and court resumed for the 11th day.
Monday, court ended with gripping testimony from Trayvon's father, Tracy Martin, as he took the stand to give his account of when he was first asked by detectives to identify the screams on the 911 call.
Detectives testified that Martin said the screams were not those of his son, Trayvon.
Earlier in the day, several friends of George Zimmerman identified the screams as Zimmerman calling for help.
On Monday, Judge Debra Nelson also ruled that toxicology reports showing Trayvon Martin had trace amounts of marijuana in his system when he died would be allowed as evidence.
