The parents of slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martin say they want to see “justice” in the second-degree murder trial of George Zimmerman.

A month before the trial began, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin told NBC News’ Kerry Sanders that they believe their 17-year-old son was doing nothing wrong on Feb. 26, 2012—the night he was shot and killed by Zimmerman, 29, who told police he acted in self-defense.

Martin’s parents haven’t spoken publicly since testimony began, but on May 9 they sat down with NBC News for an extensive interview that lasted over an hour.

“Justice, to me, would be for the person who killed our son to be held accountable and for all the evidence to come out and for, you know, a jury to hear everything that happened that night of February 26,” Fulton said.
