Judge Debra S. Nelson said Friday that defendant George Zimmerman’s attorneys need to know whether Trayvon Martin’s school records and social media postings give any evidence that he had violent tendencies.

Mr. Zimmerman, 29, fatally shot the 17-year-old in February. Mr. Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder, saying he shot Trayvon in self-defense. The judge has scheduled Mr. Zimmerman’s trial for next June.
