Prosecutors in the second-degree murder case against George Zimmerman filed their list of witnesses and evidence in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin late Monday at the Seminole County clerk’s office.

The eight-page document redacts most names from the witness list, but in addition to law enforcement officers and fire-rescue personnel, they include Martin’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, his brother, Jahvarius Fulton, and Zimmerman’s father, Robert Zimmerman, neighbor Frank Taaffe and friend Joe Oliver.  Special Prosecutor Angela Corey’s office also provided nine reports by the Sanford Police Department, including five by lead investigator Chris Serino.

Evidence includes videos from Feb. 26, the night of Martin’s death, taken at the 7-Eleven store where he purchased candy and iced tea, and from the clubhouse in the gated community where he was killed.  Other items: cell phone records for Zimmerman, Martin and an unnamed witness; materials from the neighborhood watch program for which Zimmerman was acting as a volunteer; Zimmerman’s gun, concealed weapon permit and medical and legal records; crime scene phots and Martin’s autopsy report.

Other witnesses include investigators from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the office of Seminole County State Attorney Norm Wolfinger and Corey’s office.
