(CBS) SANFORD, Fla. - The testimony of a friend of Trayvon Martin, who was on the phone with the Florida teen just before he was fatally shot by former neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, will continue Thursday morning.
Rachel Jeantel, a key prosecution witness, testified Wednesday that she heard Martin saying "Get off, get off" just before the deadly altercation. She also said she heard a "hard-breathing man" say "What are you doing around here?"
Jeantel's testimony grew emotional as she described feeling guilty about not attending Martin's wake. Prosecutors have said Jeantel, 19, lied about being in the hospital on the day of Martin's funeral.
Before the court recessed for the day around 5:15 p.m. Wednesday, Jeantel appeared to grow exasperated as defense attorney Don West cross-examined her, asking her about a statement she made to Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump.
West asked whether Jeantel told Crump that she heard a second voice on the phone call with Martin saying, "What are you talking about," not "What are you doing around here," as she testified Thursday.
Jeantel repeated several times that she had "rushed" the interview. When West asked again about the Crump interview, Jeantel said, "I had told you that I rushed on the interview between me and Crump."
"You didn't think about it carefully enough to be sure that you had told it accurately?" West asked.
"Yes," Jeantel replied.
When West told Circuit Judge Debra Nelson that the court should plan for "at least of couple of hours" of continued testimony from Jeantel Thursday, Jeantel said, "What?"
Court was set to resume again at 9 a.m. Thursday morning for the fourth day of testimony.
