After months of legal wrangling in a case that surrounds race relations and gun laws, opening statements were set to began Monday in the trial of George Zimmerman, who is accused in the killing of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin.
“I ask that you pray for me and my family because I don’t want any other mother to experience what I’m going through now,” Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, told reporters Monday morning.
“George Zimmerman was a grown man with a gun,” said Benjamin Crump, an attorney for the Martin family. Trayvon Martin was a minor with no blood on his hands, literally.”
