(USA Today) SANFORD, Fla. — A Florida jury deciding the fate of a neighborhood watch volunteer charged with killing Trayvon Martin will hear more stirring testimony Thursday from a 19-year-old woman who heard the last moments of the boy’s life.
Rachel Jeantel, 19, says she was on the phone with Trayvon right before he was killed and that George Zimmerman stared at and then came after the young man who tried several times to run away. She was one of three state witnesses Wednesday who painted Zimmerman as the aggressor in the deadly confrontation that later sparked racial controversy and protests around the country.
“A man was watching him,” Jeantel said. “He (Trayvon) told me he was going to try to lose him.”
