The defense could wrap up its case in George Zimmerman’s murder trial today.

This morning, presiding Judge Debra Nelson ruled that a defense animation of the struggle between Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin is not admissible as evidence.

However, the jury could see it in closing arguments or through a witness. The judge also ruled that text messages on Martin’s phone in which he talked about guns and fighting are not allowed.

Zimmerman is claiming self-defense in Martin’s Death. So far, he has not testified.
