During George Zimmerman’s bond trial on Friday morning, the lead investigator behind Florida’s second degree murder charge was grilled by Zimmerman’s lawyer over the assertions he made that ultimately led to Zimmerman’s arrest. He responded to the defense’s questioning by saying that contrary to his original statements, there wasn’t evidence that could define who started the struggle between Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin.
Megyn Kelly explained that what doesn’t make sense with the investigator’s testimony today was the fact that the probable cause included in the second degree murder affidavit said, “Zimmerman confronted Martin, and a struggle ensued.”
Today, Mark O’Mara, George Zimmerman’s attorney, asked the investigator who thinks he started the fight the night Trayvon Martin was killed.
Defense attorneys Jonna Spilbor and Mark Eiglarsh joined America Live to discuss the hearing. They both agreed that this apparent contradiction will likely be a huge problem for the state to overcome when it comes to winning this case.
