Trayvon's killer said to make self-incriminating statements

ORLANDO, Fla., May 24 (Reuters) - Neighborhood watch captain
George 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 a court 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.

"Defendant (Zimmerman) has provided law enforcement with
numerous statements, some of which are contradictory, and are
inconsistent with the physical evidence and statements of
witnesses," the prosecutors said in their court filing.
