Local expert on Zimmerman trial, jury to get case

Posted: Updated:

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) - When jurors begin deliberating in the racially charged murder trial of George Zimmerman, they will also be able to consider a lesser charge of manslaughter in the fatal shooting of unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin.

The defense, which claims Zimmerman killed Martin in self-defense, was expected to give its closing arguments Friday, a day after the prosecution spent two hours summarizing its case.

Prosecutors reserved one hour of the three they are allotted for rebuttal once the defense concludes. After that, the jurors will begin deliberating.

Joining Good Day Atlanta in-studio with a legal breakdown of the high-profile, emotionally charged George Zimmerman trial is local criminal defense attorney and former DeKalb County District Attorney J. Tom Morgan.

    We already know about some of the fees our banks charge -- the monthly fee, the overdraft charge, out-of-network and minimum balance fees. That's standard stuff. But did you know that the average checking account has 30 fees attached?
