SANFORD, Florida. -- The mother of Trayvon Martin, Sybrina Fulton, and his brother took the stand on Friday. After hearing the 911 call the evening Trayvon was fatally shot, his mother identified the screams in the background as her son.
Fulton first talked about her son's tattoos, including Fulton's name, which she said was on his wrist.
Trayvon's brother, Jahvaris Fulton also took the stand on Friday and said he was "very close" with his brother. Fulton also told the court he recognized the voice on the tape as Trayvon's.
One of George Zimmerman's closest friends takes the stand last week to answer questions about how Zimmerman reacted after the shooting of Trayvon Martin.
The friend of Trayvon Martin who was on the phone with him while he was killed, also testified in court. Rachel Jeantel told the court, that Trayvon kept complaining of a man watching him while he was on the phone with her. She also said he 'thought he lost him,' then started yelling 'get off, get off!'
George Zimmerman shot the unarmed teen during an altercation in a Sanford gated community. Zimmerman told investigators he killed Trayvon in self-defense after the teen attacked him.
Prosecutors are expected to argue that Zimmerman followed Trayvon and started a confrontation after he identified the teen as an intruder.
