SANFORD — George Zimmerman’s fate could be in jurors’ hands by Friday, after the defense rested its case Wednesday with Zimmerman declining to take the stand.

When Circuit Judge Debra Nelson asked Zimmerman, 29, what he had decided about testifying in his second-degree murder trial, the former neighborhood-watch leader stood, straightened his dark suit, and spoke softly.
