Key Prosecution Witness Against Zimmerman Changes Testimony on Stand
On Tuesday, a key prosecution witness in the George Zimmerman trial, Selene Bahadoor, changed her testimony on the stand from her earlier interviews, stating that she heard two figures, presumably Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin, running “left to right.” That direction implies people running toward the home where Martin was staying. Bahadoor further testified that she saw two people waving their arms, both standing. She then heard a gunshot after leaving her window, she said.
Defense attorney Mark O’Mara cross-examined Bahadoor, getting her to admit that she had never mentioned any “left to right” running in three pretrial interviews with lawyers. She said she had not been asked. O’Mara asked, “How did you know that today was the day that that evidence, having never been spoken from your lips before, should come out?” “I was just saying what I remembered,” she stated.
