Defense lawyers for George Zimmerman, charged with the second-degree murder of Trayvon Martin, rested their case. The murder and racketeering trial of mob boss James "Whitey" Bulger took a macabre turn,as jurors heard from a witness who described how authorities had exhumed the bodies of at least two of the gang's victims from a Boston field. A forensic pathologist, testifying for the defense in the George Zimmerman trial, described Trayvon Martin's traumatic last moments alive as he bled to death in the grass after being shot at close range. "If he was involved in a struggle you expect his heart to be going, beating -- especially after he had been shot -- more than a 100 times a minute," said Dr. Vincent Di Maio. "You are losing 1,500 cc's {cubic centimeters) in a minute. That's about a quarter of his blood supply." less
