It is believed that information on the phone could reveal the dead teen’s state of mind.
Zimmerman, is charged with second-degree murder in the February killing of Trayvon Martin and has maintained that he acted in self-defense. His attorneys hope information on the phone could back that claim.
It could reveal who and what might have been on Martin’s mind at the time of the shooting from his text messages. Attorneys say it could give them a better insight into the 17-year-old through the websites he visited and the photos and video he shot.
