Did the prosecution prove its case?

  • George Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder
  • Jane Velez-Mitchell will be live from Sanford starting on Monday

On Friday, the prosecution rested in the George Zimmerman trial.  On the final day, the state called Trayvon’s mother and brother to the stand and concluded with the medical examiner.  Did the prosecution do enough to prove its case?

Zimmerman, a former neighborhood watch captain, is charged with second-degree murder for shooting 17-year-old Martin on February 26, 2012. He told police he was pursuing Martin because there had been a rash of crime in the area. A conflict ensued, and Zimmerman said he was forced to kill Martin in self-defense.
