Defense set to make its final argument to the jury – George Howell reports

After days of intense drama at the George Zimmerman trial, the prosecution made its case yesterday. The defense makes its closing pitch today.

Zimmerman’s attorneys will argue to the jury today why their client is not guilty of murder or manslaughter in the death of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin.

CNN’s George Howell is in Sanford, Florida with more from the courtroom.

“Prosecutor Bernie De La Rionda went into great detail, pointing out inconsistencies in Zimmerman's story, from the national television interview Zimmerman did, to the video reenactment he conducted with police,” Howell reports.

“The prosecutor then picked apart Zimmerman's account of what happened.”

Tune in to CNN as the trial continues.
