She later told West she didn't take the interview with Crump seriously and that she didn't want to be interviewed but had already committed to it.

West asked if Jeantel and Martin were dating and Jeantel said the amount of text messages made it seem like they were boyfriend and girlfriend but they were not. "There was another young lady he was seeing," she said.

Jeantel argued with West about why the defense didn't interview her on the specific day they had planned.

West then had Jeantel read over a written transcript of her interview with Crump. Jeantel then became hostile with West's questions, asking him "are you listening?" Earlier in the day, Jeantel answered a question from West and then told him to continue on.

"You can go on," she said. "Go on."

West responded, "I'm sorry it takes me time to form the next question."

As the day closed, Jeantel told West she wanted to be done testifying on Wednesday and West asked if she was refusing to come back on Thursday. Nelson interjected and told West to continue questioning Jeantel.

When West told the judge he would need more hours for cross-examination and redirect Jeantel said, "What?!" appearing upset.

The court was then recessed for the day until Thursday at 9 a.m. Jeantel will continue testifying.

Earlier Wednesday, an alternate juror was dismissed from the trial, Judge Debra S. Nelson announced.

The juror, identified as B72, was dismissed for reasons unrelated to the case, she said. 

The juror, a 22-year-old single Hispanic man, was one of two men serving as alternate jurors in the case.  Jurors themselves, however, don't find out if they will be an alternate or serving on the six-member panel determining Zimmerman's fate until after closing arguments.

Prosecutors on Wednesday continued questioning witnesses who saw some of the confrontation between the neighborhood watch volunteer and Martin that left the Miami-area teen dead.

The testimony of a neighbor of Zimmerman on Tuesday was the first by a witness who saw some of the fatal struggle.

The state's ninth witness, Jayne Surdyka, said she heard a loud voice outside her second-floor condo, sounding aggressive.

"I heard very aggressive voice ... very angry, very agitated ... Then I would hear a lighter, softer, higher pitched voice," she told the court.

Surdyka said she saw two people on the ground, one of top of the other and could hear scuffling so she called 911. She said heard heard the struggle in the same area Zimmerman says he was attacked by Martin.

Surdyka said she "felt" the higher pitched voice was a boy's voice when the defense objected for improper predicate. Nelson overruled the objection.

"It was like a boy's voice," Surdyka said. She continued, saying she heard three popping noises and saw "one person got up and started walking right towards my window .. put his hand to his forehead." Only one shot was fired in the fatal encounter.

Prosecutors then played Surdyka's 911 call, which is when she says she heard a gunshot as she was dialing. The 911 call connected at 7:17:06 p.m., about 10 seconds after the gunshot.

Surdyka grabbed a tissue on the witness stand as she listened to sound of her own voice describe the shooting on the 911 calls, saying she heard a man say "help, help" before the gunshot. Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, wiped tears away as the call was played.

De la Rionda finished questioning by asking Surdyka if the event was traumatic for her, to which she responded it was.

West cross-examined Surdyka, indicating he will argue the cry for help was Zimmerman in an "extreme life-threatening situation."

West questioned Surdyka about the non-aggressive voice, who called it "meek." The Sanford Police Department Neighborhood Watch coordinator testified Zimmerman was "meek" on Tuesday.

Surdyka told West the man on top of the struggle had "dark or black" shirt. Martin wore a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt and Zimmerman was wearing a reddish/orange jacket that night of the shooting.
