George Zimmerman's attorney says the defense will likely wrap up its case in the neighborhood watch volunteer's second-degree murder trial on Wednesday. Zimmerman, so far, hasn't testified. But jurors saw repeated video recordings of Zimmerman telling his side of the story to police investigators. The defense started its case last Friday, and if it keeps to the schedule anticipated by defense attorney Mark O'Mara, its presentation will take about half of the time of the prosecution. The 911 calls that captured screams from a fatal fight between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin are once again at the center of testimony in Zimmerman's second-degree murder trial. Defense attorneys called Sanford City Manager Norton Bonaparte to the witness stand to describe the circumstances of how Martin's family came to hear the 911 tapes. An expert on gunshot wounds hired by the defense testified that George Zimmerman's account of how he fatally shot Trayvon Martin is consistent with the forensic evidence.
