SANFORD, Fla. (AP) - George Zimmerman's lawyer is telling jurors that the prosecution hasn't proven Zimmerman guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
Jurors may start considering later today whether Zimmerman is guilty of second-degree murder or manslaughter in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman says he acted in self-defense.
His lawyer, in closing arguments today, said prosecutors had built a case on a series of hypothetical "could've beens" and "maybes."
Yesterday, prosecutors made the case that Zimmerman assumed Martin was a criminal up to no go when he confronted him in his neighborhood. A scuffle followed, and Zimmerman fired his gun.
