SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — George Zimmerman's attorney says the defense will likely wrap up its case in the neighborhood watch volunteer's second-degree murder trial on Wednesday.

Defense attorney Mark O'Mara told the judge presiding over the case on Tuesday that his team needs only one more day.

Zimmerman, so far, hasn't testified. But jurors saw repeated video recordings of Zimmerman telling his side of the story to police investigators.

The defense started its case last Friday, and if it keeps to the schedule anticipated by O'Mara, its presentation will take about half of the time of the prosecution.

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder. He is pleading not guilty, claiming he shot Trayvon Martin in self-defense.
