SANFORD, FL - Testimony in the George Zimmerman trial is expected to shift toward prosecution witnesses that will testify on scientific evidence against a former neighborhood watch leader charged in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin.
Entering the second week of testimony Monday, prosecutors have yet to call forensics experts or investigators that performed testing on the handgun Zimmerman used to shoot the teenager during an altercation last year.
The testimony will shed more light on the positioning of Martin and Zimmerman at the time of the shooting.
More than 20 witnesses testified during the first week of a trial that has opened up national debates about race, equal justice, self-defense and gun control.
Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder and has pleaded not guilty, claiming self-defense.
