SANFORD, Fla. (AP) - A friend of Trayvon Martin who was the last person to talk to the teen before his encounter with George Zimmerman is back on the witness stand for a second day in the neighborhood watch volunteer's murder trial.

Rachel Jeantel took the stand Thursday. She is one of the prosecution's most important witnesses because she bolsters the contention that Zimmerman was the aggressor in his confrontation with 17-year-old Martin. She was on the phone with Martin moments before he was fatally shot.

Defense attorney Don West began challenging Jeantel on Thursday about her different accounts of what happened.

Zimmerman is pleading not guilty, claiming self-defense.
