Trayvon Martin

Police Interview of Zimmerman After Shooting Recounted at Trial

Audiotape played for jury


The Sanford police detective who questioned George Zimmerman at the station the night he shot Trayvon Martin took the stand in Zimmerman's murder trial and recalled the defendant observing a cross around her neck and telling her his religion forbade killing.

Det. Doris Singleton testified Monday that Zimmerman seemed somber and conflicted as she interviewed him after the February, 2012 shooting.

"I had a silver cross on and he asked me if I was Catholic," Singleton said during testimony. "I said no. I'm Christian. Why are you asking?"
