    George Zimmerman’s defense presented closing arguments in the second-degree-murder trial for the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Defense attorney Mark O’Mara took jurors through the timeline of events that night and asked the jury for a strange, four-minute moment of silence—the amount of time Trayvon was supposedly running—time the defense argued that the Florida teen was actually hiding, waiting to confront and attack Zimmerman with “dangerous items, from his fists to the concrete." Assistant State Attorney John Guy then offered a rebuttal saying that only two people really know what happened that night and “one of them can’t testify and the other one lied.” The six-woman jury could go into deliberation later today.
