A medical examiner testified that George Zimmerman's injuries were "insignificant" and could have been the result of a single blow as prosecutors continued to make their case that the neighborhood watch volunteer was not simply defending himself when he shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
Dr. Valerie Rao, who was called by the prosecution to provide her assessment of Zimmerman's injuries based on photos, cast doubt on Zimmerman's claim his head was repeatedly bashed against the pavement as he fought with Martin in the Feb. 26, 2012 incident.
"The injuries are so minor that the word slam implies great force," Rao said in response to questioning by prosecutor John Guy. "There was not great force used here."
The George Zimmerman trial has been going on all week with jurors hearing testimony from investigators and witnesses involved in the case.Zimmerman allegedly killed Trayvon Martin back in 2012 after an altercation. Martin was walking home from the store when Zimmerman, part of the neighborhood watch, thought Martin was up to no good. Zimmerman called the police but followed Martin while carrying a gun. Eventually, Martin confronts Zimmerman as to why he was following him, a fight breaks out and Martin is dead on the sidewalk.Tonight CPT continues its coverage of the George Zimmerman Trial.
