SANFORD, Fla. - The prosecutor in the case of the Florida man charged with shooting Trayvon Martin wants to know definitively if he plans to seek immunity under the state's "Stand Your Ground" self-defense law.
State attorney Bernie de la Rionda is presenting a motion to the judge Tuesday during what will likely be the final lengthy hearing prior to George Zimmerman's second-degree murder trial in June.
Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty.
Defense attorney Mark O'Mara told Judge Debra Nelson in March that he didn't need two weeks she'd set aside this month for an immunity hearing. But De la Rionda wants clarity on O'Mara's intentions ahead of the June 10 trial date.
O'Mara also wants the court to unseal the amount of a civil settlement Martin's parents received from Zimmerman's homeowner's association.
