After taking less than a week to call 18 witnesses, George Zimmerman's defense attorneys have rested their case in the neighborhood watch volunteer's second-degree murder trial. The case is now expected to be sent to the six jurors. Zimmerman, who never testified, claims that he shot Trayvon Martin, who was unarmed, in self-defense while the teen straddled and punched him.
