SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — A central Florida judge is considering whether to allow defense attorneys to use an animated depiction of the fatal struggle between Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman at Zimmerman's second-degree murder trial.

Judge Debra Nelson was holding an evidence hearing Tuesday on the piece of animation commissioned by defense attorneys.

Prosecutors object to the animation, saying it isn't an accurate depiction.

Defense attorneys have called the man who created the animation to testify.

Zimmerman is pleading not guilty. The former neighborhood watch volunteer claims he shot Martin in self-defense.
