SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — A neighbor of George Zimmerman who had perhaps the best view of the struggle between the neighborhood watch volunteer and Trayvon Martin has taken the witness stand in Zimmerman’s murder trial.

Jonathan Good was the second person to take the witness stand on Friday, the fifth day of testimony.

Good says he heard a noise in back of his townhome in February 2012, and he saw what looked like a tussle when he stepped out onto his patio to see what was happening.

He says he yelled, “What’s going on? Stop it.”

Zimmerman is charged with second degree murder in Martin’s fatal shooting. He is pleading not guilty, claiming self-defense.
