After a one-day respite for the July 4 holiday, the much-watched second-degree murder trial of George Zimmerman continues in Sanford, Fla., Friday.
The ex-neighborhood watchman shot Trayvon Martin to death in 2012, and the case has gripped the nation for the better part of a year and a half.
Part of the reason for that? The prosecution’s case is far from iron-clad, at least according to analysts who have watched the trial’s first two weeks.
The state has called Martin’s brother as one of its final witnesses, though if history repeats itself, he may end up helping the defense instead.
Zimmerman, 29, claims he shot the unarmed 17-year-old in self-defense. Watch the up-to-the-minute live stream of his trial in the video below:
