Defense witnesses dispute Prosecution claims in Zimmerman trial – George Howell reports

The defense presented its case in the George Zimmerman trial yesterday.

Jurors heard from a parade of witnesses, all disputing a key prosecution claim that the voice screaming for help on the 911 call the night Trayvon Martin died was Martin’s. Defense witnesses hammered home the same answer to make their case that the voice screaming on the call was actually George Zimmerman's.

Today, the defense is set to introduce its own controversial piece of evidence: A toxicology report on Trayvon Martin.

George Howell has details.

“Judge Debra Nelson ruled that testimony regarding marijuana levels in Trayvon Martin's system will now be allowed as evidence for jurors to consider, as this trial moves into day 11,” Howell reports.

    No one can have your head's poundiing 6 times in a concrete slab and you have some type of concussions. And that person is not complaining of head trauma. He was never taken to the hospital the same day or the day after. That's why i believe Dr. DiMaio testamony was nothing but BS!!!
