Zimmerman trial heads into 2nd week beginning with star witness

SANFORD   --  The start of the second week of the George Zimmerman murder trial kicked off with a testimony from a star witness

Jurors are hearing from from Chris Serino the lead investigator in the case who recommended manslaughter charges against George Zimmerman.

Serino recommended manslaughter charges against George Zimmerman three weeks after the shooting of Trayvon Martin saying "the encounter was ultimately avoidable by Zimmerman if Zimmerman had remained in his vehicle."
At the time, the state attorney said there wasn't enough evidence to convict Zimmerman.
