ORLANDO, Fla. -

There is a new battleground in the Trayvon Martin case.

The lead attorney for former neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman claims prosecutors are dragging their feet on turning over some evidence and not turning over other information in a timely manner.

On Monday, defense attorney Mark O'Mara also said prosecutors are providing some discovery in a format that's useless for defense experts to examine. They're asking for monthly hearings to manage the turnover of evidence from prosecutors to defense lawyers.

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin during a confrontation in a Sanford gated community last February.

Zimmerman's attorneys also asked prosecutors for cellphone photos taken by a witness and a police officer on the night of the shooting.

A spokeswoman for the State Attorney's Office didn't immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
