Attorneys for George Zimmerman will be back in court this morning to push for evidence they want prosecutors to provide.
Mark O'Mara, the lead defense attorney for the man charged in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, wants access to Trayvon's Facebook and Twitter accounts.
He also will ask for access to the social media accounts and will subpoena medical records of Witness 8, a young woman who says she was talking to Trayvon on the phone moments before he was killed. Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump talked with Witness 8 and recorded the conversation, but neither the state nor defense has been able to talk to her.
For months, O'Mara has been trying to get access to her to find out what she heard and saw on Feb. 26, 2012, the night Trayvon was shot and killed. Last month, O'Mara lost in court when a judge ruled that Crump will not be deposed on the conversation he had with Witness 8.
O'Mara also is asking for help in obtaining more documents from the FBI's investigation into possible civil-rights violations regarding Martin's shooting.
O'Mara says the FBI hasn't been forthcoming enough with the documents it has released so far and thinks they are needed to defend Zimmerman against claims of racial profiling that are central to the case.
Zimmerman claims he acted in self-defense in fatally shooting Trayvon and has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder. Zimmerman's case heads to trial in June.
