This trial for the killer of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin could be delayed even further.

It’ll be almost a year ago that the black teen was walking home on a dark evening in Stafford, Fla and was fatally shot.

George Zimmerman is the gunman, a neighborhood watchman who initially claimed he was defending himself, despite orders from police for him to stay indoors until authorities arrived.

The defense asked the court for an extension to better prepare for the case, claiming prosecutors have been slow to turn over evidence.

In the meantime, Zimmerman is still collecting donations for his defense fund.

“The state has virtually unlimited resources to prosecute George,” his attorney Mark O’Mara said on the defense fund website. “To finance his defense, however, George relies on the generosity of individuals who believe he is innocent.”

Spokesman Shawn Vincent said Zimmerman’s attorneys want his second-degree murder trial to be moved from June to November. Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty.

A hearing for the suspect is scheduled to take place in April, 45 days before the scheduled trial.
