George Zimmerman Trial Continues

Prosecutors on Friday called Trayvon Martin’s mother and brother to the stand in the trial of the man who fatally shot him.

George Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder. His defense team argues that he shot the teen in self-defense.

A key piece of evidence was at the center of Friday’s proceedings: a 911 call on the night of the shooting on which screaming can be heard.

Lawyers on both sides want to convince the jury of who was doing the screaming, Zimmerman or Martin.

The audio was played in court for Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton. She said she recognized the screaming as that of “Trayvon Benjamin Martin.”

Defense attorney Mark O’Mara asked Fulton if she had no doubt that it was her son screaming.

“Absolutely,” she said.

Martin’s older brother, Jahvaris Fulton, 22, also took the stand Friday.
