SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — A forensic pathologist with an expertise in gunshot wounds has taken the witness stand in the George Zimmerman trial.

Dr. Vincent Di Maio was called by Zimmerman's defense attorneys on Tuesday.

Di Maio took the witness stand after defense attorneys spent two hours making a case that an animation depicting the struggle between Trayvon Martin and Zimmerman should be allowed.

Prosecutors oppose the use of the animation. The judge presiding over the trial says she will make a decision later in the day.

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder. He is pleading not guilty, claiming he fatally shot Martin in self-defense.
