"Trayvon's killer said to make self-incriminating statements"

From Reuters, via Yahoo.com. In part:

ORLANDO, Florida (Reuters) - Neighborhood watch captainGeorge Zimmerman made statements to police that help establish his guilt in the second-degree murder case against him for killing unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin, prosecutors said in acourt filing on Thursday.

The claim came in a motion by prosecutors to keep some of Zimmerman's statements under seal pending his trial in a case that triggered civil rights protests across the United States, while sparking widespread debate over guns, self-defense laws and U.S. race relations.
