Zimmerman wants evidence private in Martin case
Zimmerman defense attorney, prosecutors want evidence kept private in Trayvon Martin case
By The Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) ' Attorneys in the Trayvon Martin case want some evidence kept out of the public realm until trial.

Prosecutors and George Zimmerman's attorneys filed motions Thursday asking a judge to keep statements Zimmerman gave detectives and the names and addresses of witnesses from being publicly released. Both items normally would be part of the public record under Florida law.

Zimmerman's attorney also wants to keep private text messages, emails and journal entries Zimmerman made, at least until he can review them. Prosecutors asked that Martin's cell phone records not be released publicly.

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder for fatally shooting the 17-year-old Martin during a confrontation in February at a gated community near Orlando.

Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty and claims self-defense.
