Prosecutors rested their case Friday, a day in which both George Zimmerman's and Trayvon Martin's mother each testified that it was her son, not the other woman's, who can be heard screaming for help on a 911 call. Judge Debra Nelson denied a request by defense attorneys to acquit Zimmerman of second-degree murder after prosecutors rested. Defense attorney Mark O'Mara argued that the state didn't prove its case, and that Zimmerman was acting in self-defense. Prosecutor Richard Mantei told the judge Zimmerman was a liar and had changed his story. A Florida judge has denied a request from George Zimmerman's defense attorney to acquit the neighborhood watch volunteer of second-degree murder for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin. The prosecution in the murder trial of George Zimmerman wrapped up its case after a dramatic day of testimony Friday, with Travyon Martin's mother and brother saying the screams for help that can be heard in the background on a 911 call came from the 17-year-old. less
