SANFORD, Fla. (AP) - A neighbor of George Zimmerman who had perhaps the best view of the struggle between the neighborhood watch volunteer and Trayvon Martin testified at Zimmerman's murder trial it appeared the unarmed teen was striking Zimmerman while straddling him.

However, Jonathan Good said today he did not see anyone's head being slammed into the concrete sidewalk, which Zimmerman has said Martin did to him.

Zimmerman has claimed that he fatally shot 17-year-old Martin in self-defense as the Miami-area teen was banging his head into the concrete sidewalk behind the townhomes in a gated community.

Under prosecution questioning, Good said he never saw anyone being attacked that way during the fight between Zimmerman and Martin.

Zimmerman is charged with second degree murder in Martin's death. He is pleading not guilty, claiming self-defense.
