Watch George Zimmerman trial streaming live online June 27, 2013 (videos, Twitter updates)

Rachel Jeantel returns to the courtroom today to continue testimony in the George Zimmerman trial. Zimmerman faces second-degree murder charges for the Feb. 26, 2012, shooting death of unarmed, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Martin was walking home to his father's fiancee's apartment at the Retreat at Twin Lakes in Sanford, Florida after purchasing a bag of Skittles for his then 14-year-old, soon-to-be stepbrother and a watermelon-flavored, Arizona ice-tea. Phone records
show a steady stream of conversation between Martin and his friend Rachel Jeantel.

Zimmerman, a volunteer neighborhood watch person saw Trayvon and thought he looked suspicious and possibly had ulterior motives for being in the vicinity. He called authorities to say something was wrong with Trayvon. When 911 dispatcher Sean Noffke detected that Zimmerman was out of breath, he asked if Zimmerman was following Trayvon and advised him not to do so.

Jeantel's testimony is valid as phone records verify that she was on the phone with Trayvon during the time of Zimmerman's pursuit.
