Prosecution finishes rebuttal in Zimmerman trial
SANFORD, Fla. - A prosecutor in George Zimmerman's murder trial has ended his rebuttal, saying the neighborhood watch volunteer told a series of lies in his statements about shooting Trayvon Martin.
Prosecutor John Guy argued that Zimmerman repeatedly lied about the shooting of the unarmed 17-year-old Martin.
His rebuttal came after defense attorney Mark O'Mara said prosecutors had failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman committed second-degree murder.
Jurors are taking a lunch break, and when they return Judge Debra Nelson will read them jury instructions.
The six jurors will then begin deliberations.
