Martin’s body was on the grass, facedown with his hands under him, Raimondo said. “I breathed for Mr. Martin -- or I tried to,” he said. Raimondo testified that he sat the body upright to feel for an exit wound and felt a cold can in Martin’s hooded sweatshirt pocket – the Arizona brand drink he had purchased. He laid the body back down, but unfortunately, could not revive Martin.
The jury must decide whether Zimmerman shot and killed the teen in self defense, or if he stalked the youth and provoked the deadly 2012 confrontation.
Zimmerman could face life in prison if convicted on the second-degree murder charges.
