Key deposition sought in Trayvon Martin case

Posted: Updated:
SANFORD (AP) -

Defense attorneys for the former neighborhood watch leader accused of fatally shooting Trayvon Martin are seeking to obtain a deposition from a witness who says she was on the phone with the teenager before he was killed.
 
George Zimmerman's lead attorney, Mark O'Mara, will present a motion to the judge on Friday asking to question the woman known as Witness 8.
 
Described as a friend of the 17-year-old Martin, she originally recounted the conversation she had with him to attorney Benjamin Crump in a recorded phone interview. Crump is representing Martin's parents.
 
O'Mara also wants a deposition from Crump regarding that interview. Crump has previously submitted an affidavit, citing a formal deposition could jeopardize attorney-client privilege.
 
Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder. Trial is set for June.
