    OM trying to impeach Jahvaris' ID of Trayvon's voice on the tape. Judge is reading the interview with reporter. She asks OM what is the purpose of wanting to play the tape if not for impeachment. If not for impeachment, the tape may not be played. Objection is sustained.

    Judge says there isn't sufficient legal basis for Jahvaris Fulton TV interview to be played. #zimmerman

    Challenge him because his answers about the interview did not change. 2/2 #Zimmermanon9

    The defense wants the jury to hear his interview as the "best evidence". The judge says at this point defense can't 1/2 #Zimmermanon9

    The jury is not back yet as they figure out whether Martin's brother wavered in his testimony today. #Zimmermanon9


    Bill S. says OM should not have crossed the mother and did himself no favors by trying to get her to impeach herself and say she was hoping to hear her son.

    Pros. did well to show TM was from a good family, educated mother, brother in college, both well spoken..

    Brought out TMs tattoos were of praying hands and mother's name, not so ****gish as believed.

    Bill S.....OM apologizing to mother for loss of her son was awkward and should not have been said....he is still going to take his velvet glove and cross exam her and try to impeach what she said...OM could have asked these questions of the brother to get possible listener bias out.

    He also feels the pros. would have been more effective if they had waited and put the mother on last. (I'm thinking maybe she wanted to go first and get it over with). She is also subject to recall and he thinks she will be back on stand since evidence can't be presented due to lock problem, but she will ID some evidence for state later.

    Court says tape not impeachment. This does not mean it cannot be played in defense case for #Zimmerman.

    The defense is trying to show that the family identification was tainted:without law enforcement and done in a group. #Zimmermanon9

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 1m
    Sybrina Fulton was straightforward and dignified on the witness stand. There was no emotional performance as in other trials. #Zimmermanon9

    Kathi Belich, WFTV Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 3m
    The defense is handling Martin's family delicately but still trying to challenge their identification of the screams. #Zimmermanon9

    Court still in recess....there are 2 locks on evidence locker, one having to be sawed off!

    Martin's brother said he and Martin spent a lot of time at Tracy Martin's house with his new wife who says she raised Martin. #Zimmermanon9

    DLR up for redirect. Asks the brother if listening to the tape was emotionally difficult for him. yes

    Is he now sure that it was TMs voice on tape. yes

    They both visited with dad on weekends, and also visited his mother and TM on weekends from school.

    The defense is pointing out that Martin's brother had listened to the 911 tape more than once and said two weeks later he #Zimmermanon9

    Now asking Jahvaris about Tracy Martin and when he left the home and later remarried....He had his own circle of friends and how he interacted with TM. Asking about the time he and TM spent with their Dad. (what's the purpose?)

    The state keeps putting Sybrina on the stand and leaving her to sit while they go to the bench. Unusual. #Zimmermanon9

    Jury was just sent out again.

    Bill S. discussing why OM did not ask the mother/brother about TMs personality, etc. This would open the door to negative testimony that was barred by the court, school records, etc.

    Jury is back in. Testimony resumes with Sybrina Fulton.

    DLR shows her a button and asks her if this was something that TM wore. yes..

    (I remember this was some type of remembrance of a person who had died).

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 1m
    Sybrina Fulton identifies a button that she says #trayvonmartin wore usually. She's now off the stand.

    -----

    State now calls ME....he says he is associate ME for the area. Telling about when he came to the U.S. and education and certifications and licenses.

    DLR asks him what an autopsy is. He has done more than 3000 autopsies and has previously testified as an expert. Accepted as expert by judge and defense.

    Trayvon's autopsy was done in ME office in Volusia Co., cause of death was gunshot wound, manner is killed by another person. Trayvon was not identified at the time; his body was sealed in plastic bag; gave his height, weight, clothes, and describes wound.

    FRIDAY JULY 5, 2013

    10:12 AM EDT (7:12 AM PDT)

    THE EVIDENCE SAFE HAS BEEN CRACKED OPEN, ALL EYES ON SYBRINA ON THE STAND FOR THE SECOND TIME THIS MORNING.

    SIDEBARS GALORE!

    JUDGE SENDS JURY TO THEIR ROOM FOR WHAT SHE SAYS WILL BE ABOUT 5 MINUTES.

    The safe has been opened, Sybrina is recalled to the stand.

    Bernie: Shows the button to Sybrina and asks if this is the button your son always wore.

    Sybrina: Yes.

    No further questions, Sybrina Fulton is excused.

    Now waiting for Medical Examiner.

    WITNESS:

    Shiping Bao Medical Examiner
    Original training in China, came here and studied at Alabama. Medical licenses in Florida and Texas.
    His office covers both Seminole and Volusia Counties.

    Has done more than 3,000 autopsies Has previously testified in Court in Florida (and Texas)

    The Trayvon Autopsy

    Determined cause of death: Gunshot wound of chest.

    Manner: Homicide

    Came to office as Unidentified.

    First did x-ray to try to locate bullet/s. X-ray showed bullet fragments.

    Bullet went straight through anterior right ventricle of the heart. Two bullet fragments recovered in the right plural cavity of the lung.

    Medical Examiner saying that he believed Trayvon was still alive after the gunshot, that he was in pain, that he was suffering..

    West Objects. Overruled. West Objects again, saying speculation. Bao says it is his opinion. Judge tells Bao he is not to say anything. Sidebar.

    Objection is sustained.

    Bernie, going to ask Bao questions, just answer my questions if you can.


    Showing photos of …

    West is expressing no knowledge of the photos, wants copies to study as witness testifies.
    West: Are photos in evidence?
    Judge: Yes they are.

    Photos are of a sealed body bag with Trayvon's body in it. #81 - #84.

    Exhibit #85 + etc - Medical Examiner Photos of the body out of the body bag and with clothes on.
    They continue showing photos for him to identify for the Jury. Photos are not shown on the live stream.

    Weighed: 158 pounds.

    No other injuries, no disease, good health. No blood on hands.

    Identifying the bullet entrance wound in this case is easy, there is no exit wound.

    Any other injuries. Small abrasion on left hand.

    Bullet went straight from the front to the back.

    Bao believes Trayvon was alive for one to ten minutes after he was shot.

    Two holes on the right ventricle of the heart, there was no chance he could have survived.

    Dr. Bao says Martin lived for 1 to 10 minutes after being shot but there was zero chance he would've survived. #Zimmermanon9

    Dr. Bao wants to bring some fact into testimony, defense objects, judge tells him to wait until he is asked the question...

    Was a contact wound but 'loose' contact with the gun due to the clothing in between. He cannot determine if TM was standing on ground, position at time of shot, but can say the gun was in front of him.

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 2m
    Dr. Bao believes the shot was not a contact shot but fired from intermediate range which is 4 inches to 4 feet. 1/2 #Zimmermanon9

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 57s
    Had loose contact with the clothing based on the gunpowder pattern. 2/2 #Zimmermanon9

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 2m
    Bao says he believes that the muzzle of the gun had "loose contact" with the clothing #trayvonmartin was wearing when he was shot.

    DLR showing him exhibit, he IDs as bullet he took from TMs body, and shown to jury.

    Bao says its his opinion that he doesn't think #trayvonmartin would be able to move after gunshot. #zimmerman


    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 1m
    The issue of moving is important because Martin's hands were under his body but #Zimmermanon9 said he had spread out Martin's arms.

    Kathi Belich, WFTV Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 2m
    Dr. Bao believes Martin was conscious and alive, able to feel pain but could not move for one to ten minutes. #Zimmermanon9

    Kathi Belich, WFTV Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 4m
    Dr. Bao has no opinion on what position Martin was in when he was shot. #Zimmermanon9

    For those asking why photos of #TrayvonMartin's autopsy aren't being shown on the courtroom pool feed: they're too graphic. #Zimmermanon9

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 2m
    The jury just passed around autopsy photos. No expression. #Zimmermanon9

    DLR asking about TMs abrasions....

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 1m
    Dr. Bao says Martin's knuckle injuries could have happened during struggle, 2 hours before or after shooting. #Zimmermanon9
