The state will limit it's question to cause of death.

I think the state will also present the autopsy measurements of TM's height and weight. The defense will then argue that his legs were bent and rigor had set in.

I can't believe that they aren't going to have someone from Kokopelli's gym testify.  Incredible.

Yes, especially since Guy said in his opening that GZ was learning MMA fighting techniques,

The state already got that in via Altamont Family Practice testimony.  That lists that Zimmerman was using MMA.  The defense got her to explain that this was an aerobic exercise, and that she went a level of detail deeper in recording it on the medical record.  Anyway, the state probably feels it has delivered what it promised.  The medical record shows Zimmermn at the gym practicing MMA.

The testimony from a person at the gym is going to undermine the impression the state wants to leave.  I think the state should call the person from the gym, and take whatever lumps comes.  By not calling that person, it is still exposed to the lumps, plus, O'Mara will be able to argue on closing that the state chose not to call that witness because the testimony undercuts their case.

Is there a thread here that discusses GZ's demeanor during the trial?  How the jury may/may not be reading it?  I can't seem to find one....

Start one. The only thing is the occasional mention during testimony threads AFAIK.

AS explaining double action.

ETA: Then she explained extended trigger pull.

I got this wrong.

As AS explained later, 'trigger pull' is the amount of force that must be applied to the trigger to fire a round. The distance it has to move is called the 'trigger travel distance'. This was the term Guy was asking AS to explain (Video, 9:42). Then he asked her the 'relative distance' of the Kel Tec PF9. She said it has 'a longer distance than most typical pistols'.
