    Martin was apparently shot from the front from a distance of several feet.
    If you listened to the defense opening statement, apparently they are going to call a forensics expert, who is going to testify the the forensics showed that the gun was in contact with Martin's jacket and shirt, but not his skin.  This expert (the defense said his name in opening) is going to testify that this means that the shirt and jacket were hanging away from Martin's body in the front, consistent with Martin leaning forward over Zimmerman while straddling him.  

    Again, that was the defense's summary of what the witness will say in opening statement.  For them to say that in opening statement, the witness has to be on their witness list, and the prosecution knows about him.  Whether his testimony plays out as promised, we'll see.
