George Zimmerman has been released from jail hours after his first court appearance on domestic violence-related charges.
SANFORD, Fla. - A Florida judge has denied a defense request to delay the start of the trial of a neighborhood watch volunteer charged in the fatal shooting of an unarmed teen.
Circuit Judge Debra Nelson rejected the delay request Monday in the first order of business on the first day of George Zimmerman's second-degree murder trial.
Zimmerman is charged with fatally shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin last year during a fight in a gated community outside Orlando.
Defense attorney Mark O'Mara says the defense needs several more weeks to prepare. He blamed prosecutors for a delay in turning over evidence and said he needs time to interview an attorney for Martin's family.
Prosecutors opposed the request for a delay.
