SANFORD, Fla. Prosecutors want to bring up George Zimmerman's school records at his murder trial to show he knew about Florida's stand-your-ground law. Defense attorneys are arguing they are irrelevant.

Prosecutors asked a judge Tuesday to allow them to introduce school records showing Zimmerman took a class that addressed Florida's self-defense law. They say it will show he had knowledge of the law, even though he claimed he didn't in an interview with talk show host Sean Hannity. The interview was played for jurors Tuesday.

The judge said she would rule later Tuesday.

Prosecutors also want to introduce a job application Zimmerman made to a police agency in Virginia and an application to ride around with Sanford police officers.

Zimmerman is pleading not guilty to second-degree murder. He says he shot Trayvon Martin in self-defense.
