    Defense witness Dr. Vincent DiMaio, a former chief medical examiner in San Antonio, testified on Tuesday that the evidence supports George Zimmerman’s account of his altercation with Trayvon Martin. The trajectory of the bullet and the gun powder on Martin’s body suggest that Martin was on top of Zimmerman when Zimmerman pulled the trigger, DiMaio said. The doctor, who was paid $2,400 by the defense, also said that he looked at pictures of Zimmerman from the night of the shooting and saw six separate spots where Zimmerman’s face and head had been hit. DiMaio was a strong witness for the defense, but the prosecution will be on him soon.
