Teenage witness in Trayvon Martin case ‘lied’


The case of the Florida man accused of fatally shooting unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin last year took two twists Tuesday at a monthly hearing attended by attorneys on both sides of the case.

MyFoxOrlando.com reports defense attorney Mark O’Mara, who is representing the alleged shooter George Zimmerman, was seeking medical records for Martin’s girlfriend.

The girlfriend, known as Witness 8 in court proceedings, is considered to be a key witness in the case because she alleges she was on the phone with Martin before he was killed.

In a recorded interview with the attorney for Martin’s parents last March, the girl claimed Martin said during that conversation that someone was following him. She said she heard a brief exchange between him and someone before the phone was cut off. Martin was shot shortly afterwards.
