Court paperwork filed late Monday offered a window into evidence in the trial of George Zimmerman, the Florida neighborhood watch captain facing second-degree murder charges in the shooting death of teenager Trayvon Martin, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

The documents filed with the Seminole County Court by Special Prosecutor Angela Corey listed witnesses the state will call for questioning, as well as other evidence to be presented, including video from the night of the shooting, crime scene photographs and 56 audio-recorded statements, including one from a witness who called 911 the night of the shooting, according to the Sentinel.

Many of the witness names were redacted from the eight-page filing, it said, though the names of family members of both victim and shooter who will be called were made public, including Martin’s parents and Zimmerman’s father.

The documents also included the names of 18 police officers from Sanford, the Florida town where the shooting took place, and lead investigator Chris Serino, the Sentinel said.
