Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin and his older brother took the stand today.
“That scream, do you recognize that?” prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda asked Martin’s mother.
“Yes, it’s Trayvon Benjamin Martin,” she answered.
During cross examination defense attorney Mark O’Mara asked Fulton if she hoped it would be her son, because if it wasn’t her that could mean he was responsible for his death, O’Mara said.
“I heard my son screaming, I didn’t hope for anything. I simply listened to the tape.” Fulton replied.
Moments before she began her testimony, Fulton tweeted, “I pray that God gives me strength to properly represent my Angel Trayvon. He may not be perfect but he’s mine. I plead the blood of Jesus for healing.”
The prosecution is nearing the end of its case without a witness who saw the shooting or saw who started the fight.
