Prosecutors Unlock Trove Of Info From Trayvon’s Cellphone

New court paperwork reveals that prosecutors have unlocked a great deal more information from Trayvon Martin’s cellphone, including satellite-tracking information that shows where it was in the days leading up to his shooting.

But if it also lays out the teenager’s movements Feb. 26 — the day Trayvon was shot and killed by George Zimmerman — prosecutors have not released that to defense attorneys.

Defense attorney Mark O’Mara disclosed that information Wednesday in a new court filing, one asking for more time to prepare for trial.

Zimmerman, the 29-year-old Neighborhood Watch volunteer charged with second-degree murder, says he acted in self-defense when he shot the unarmed black 17-year-old. The trial is currently set for June 10.

One of O’Mara’s frustrations, he wrote, has been getting Assistant State Attorney Bernie de la Rionda to fully disclose evidence in the case.
