    For the first time since that fateful night on February 26, the father of a neighborhood watch volunteer who shot and killed an unarmed teenager sat down for a television interview.

George Zimmerman's attorney is again asking to depose a lawyer who interviewed "Witness 8," a girl who says she was on the phone with Trayvon Martin moments before he was shot by the neighborhood watch leader.

Attorney Mark O'Mara said in a court filing Monday that new evidence has come out since a judge earlier denied a motion that would have allowed Zimmerman's legal team to depose lawyer Benjamin Crump.

The new evidence includes an admission by prosecutors that the teen, known in court proceedings as Witness 8, lied when she said she had been so distraught over Martin's death that she was hospitalized and couldn't attend his funeral.

O'Mara says that lie raises questions about the truthfulness of other parts of her testimony.

Martin was fatally shot by Zimmerman during a confrontation a year ago.
