Florida prosecutors are expected today to hand over evidence in the killing of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin to the defense team of the man charged in the death.
Orlando television station WKMG reported the evidence would normally be released to the public at the same time under Florida law. However, lawyers for defendant George Zimmerman said they may ask the judge to delay the public release.
Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in the case that has drawn international attention.
