SANFORD, Fla. -- George Zimmerman, the Neighborhood Watch volunteer arrested Wednesday in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, faced a judge for the first time Thursday afternoon.
Meanwhile, a probable cause affidavit filed in the second-degree murder case failed to disclose much new evidence.
The four-page affidavit did, however, does offer a few new pieces of information. It says, that "Zimmerman confronted Martin," an apparent contradiction of Zimmerman's version of the events.
It also says Trayvon's mother identified the screams for help heard in a 911 call as those of her son. It also reveals that investigators interviewed a "friend" of Trayvon's who talked to him on the phone in the leadup to the shooting.
