SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — Jurors in the George Zimmerman trial are leaving the courtroom after an eventful day.

Prosecutors rested their case Friday, a day in which Zimmerman’s mother and Trayvon Martin’s mother each testified that it was her son, not the other woman’s, who can be heard screaming for help on a 911 call.

Judge Debra Nelson denied a request by defense attorneys to acquit Zimmerman of second-degree murder after prosecutors rested.

Defense attorney Mark O’Mara argued that the state didn’t prove its case, and that Zimmerman was acting in self-defense.

Prosecutor Richard Mantei told the judge Zimmerman was a liar and had changed his story.
