George Zimmerman prosecutors file list of witnesses, evidence in Trayvon Martin shooting


SANFORD — As many eagerly awaited the release of never-before-seen evidence in the case against George Zimmerman, members of Special Prosecutor Angela Corey’s office provided a preview on Monday in the form of an eight-page document.

The paperwork, filed with the Seminole County clerk as closing time approached, included a list of witnesses the state plans to call and identified several pieces of the evidence prosecutors expect to use to support a second-degree-murder charge in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Late Monday, Zimmerman attorney Mark O’Mara confirmed he had received the evidence at his office. It consists of dozens of CDs and “numerous” paper documents.

“It’s 67 CDs. That’s about all I know,” O’Mara said.

Most names were redacted from the witness and evidence document obtained by the Orlando Sentinel, but six civilian witnesses were named: Trayvon’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin; his brother, Jahvarius Fulton; and Zimmerman’s neighbor Frank Taaffe, friend Joe Oliver and father, Robert Zimmerman.
