SANFORD, Fla. (CBS) – A former neighbor of George Zimmerman testified he saw two men in a “tussle” outside his home the night of Feb. 26, 2012, and said he now believes the person on top in the altercation – which would moments later turn fatal – was Trayvon Martin.
In key testimony, he also said he believes George Zimmerman was the person yelling for help.
John Good took the stand Friday in the fifth day of testimony in the Zimmerman’s second-degree murder trial. The former neighborhood watch captain is charged with shooting the unarmed teen as he was walking back to his father’s fiancee’s home through a Sanford, Fla. gated community.
John Good testified he saw a man in dark clothing on top of a man who was wearing red or light-colored clothing with lighter skin. Zimmerman, 29, was wearing a red jacket the night of the altercation, and Martin was wearing a dark hoodie. However, Good testified that he didn’t see the person on top smashing the other person’s head into the sidewalk, as Zimmerman claims Martin did before he fatally shot the teen.
