"Defense attorney Woodland discussed what possible strategy the defense team might take. "You are going to have competing forensic experts, but you know what? Zimmerman has an excuse to second-degree murder in Florida which is sudden combat. If the defense can prove sudden combat then that will absolutely make the jury declare a not guilty." Sudden combat, according to Florida law states that the killing of a human being is excusable, and therefore lawful, if "the killing is committed by accident and misfortune resulting from a sudden combat, if a dangerous weapon is not used and the killing is not done in a cruel or unusual manner."
