Zimmerman prosecutors want animation nixed

Associated Press

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) —

Prosecutors have asked a judge to prevent George Zimmerman's defense attorneys from showing jurors a computer-animated depiction of his fatal confrontation with Trayvon Martin.

A motion made public Monday requests that the animation not be mentioned or played at Zimmerman's second-degree murder trial. Prosecutors say it would only confuse jurors.

Prosecutors say the animation doesn't show a murder weapon and only approximates positions based on witness accounts.

Zimmerman is charged with fatally shooting the 17-year-old Martin. He is pleading not guilty, claiming self-defense.

A series of friends have testified Monday on Zimmerman's behalf.
