AP: A central Florida judge ruled Wednesday that Trayvon Martin’s cellphone texts on fighting and a defense animation depicting the fight between Martin and George Zimmerman won’t be introduced as evidence at Zimmerman’s trial.
Judge Debra Nelson made her ruling Wednesday, a day after she heard arguments on the matter. Prosecutors had claimed the texts were irrelevant and taken out of context. They also objected to the computer animation, questioning its accuracy and saying it would mislead jurors.
The judge agreed with prosecutors’ concerns about introducing the 17-year-old’s text messages. But defense attorney Don West had argued the texts were relevant since they showed Martin’s interest in fighting and physical capabilities.
