Will bloody photos help Zimmerman's case?

  • George Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder for shooting Trayvon Martin
  • Zimmerman claims he shot the teenager in self-defense

Zimmerman’s Attorney Mark O’Mara says prosecutors initially only gave him a black and white copy of the picture of Zimmerman’s injuries from that fateful February night in Sanford, Florida.

O’Mara had to request a copy of the color high-resolution image and only recently received it. In the more graphic photo, you can see blood on Zimmerman’s nose and lips. Zimmerman says he shot the teenager in self-defense.
