7:03 am
across south africa and all across the world. i know president zuma has been trying to prepare the country for mandela's passing. is the sense of acceptance settling in? >> reporter: george, i think intellectually, people have gotten accustomed to the idea that nelson mandela, at the age of 94, almost 95, and very ill, is very likely in the final stages of his life. they are used to that. and we've been seeing crowds behind us, joyful crowds, really celebrating nelson mandela, honoring him in song and dance. but it's one thing intellectually to accept the idea that, this man, this father, that he may die. emotionally, no doubt, it is going to be a jolt when that day comes. and that day could be coming -- could be coming soon. george? >> okay, ron, thank you very much. now, to those landmark

7:06 am

7:08 am
to work together again with the same employees, even willing to offer some of those employees involved in this standoff a new contract. it looks like chip starnes is ready to get back to work. robin? george? >> got to rebuild trust. >> we'll see how that goes. now, to the high-stakes george zimmerman murder trial. the prosecution's key witness back on the stand today. trayvon martin's friend who was on the phone with him until seconds before he was shot. gave a chilling testimony about the 17-year-old's final moments. abc's matt gutman is there in sanford, florida, with the latest. good morning, matt. >> reporter: good morning, robin. rachel jeantel spent 16 months as a mystery witness. her identity kept strictly hidden. this morning, she'll spend a few more hours on the stand. yesterday, her testimony began with tears, and ended with her battling george zimmerman's attorneys in court. this morning, the prosecution's star witness, rachel jeantel, facing even more cross-examination from george
7:09 am
zimmerman's lawyer against her will. >> i'm leaving today. no. >> are you refusing to come back tomorrow? >> to you? >> reporter: jeantel, once known as witness eight, was on the phone with her friend, 17-year-old trayvon martin, the night he was shot and killed by zimmerman. on wednesday, she told jurors martin thought he was being followed. >> he just told me the man, the man looked creepy. >> he said the man looked creepy? >> creepy, white, excuse my language, cracker. >> reporter: she says she told martin to run away from zimmerman. and the 28-year-old watchman -- >> you better keep running. nah, he lost him. >> reporter: but martin didn't lose him. instead, jeantel said she heard the teen asking zimmerman -- >> why are you following me for? and then i heard a hard breath man come say, what are you doing here? i started to hear a little bit of trayvon saying, get off. get off. >> reporter: prosecutors believe
7:10 am
jeantel's story proves that zimmerman followed and confronted martin and then shot him. zimmerman has pleaded not guilty, arguing martin assaulted him, and that he only shot in self-defense. jeantel's testimony, at times, hard to understand. but the emotional impact, unmistakable. defense attorneys challenging her on inconsistencies in her deposition. and why she lied about missing martin's wake. >> under oath, was that you created a lie and said you had gone to the hospital. >> yes. >> reporter: this morning, zimmerman's attorneys will again suggest that jeantel has been lying to help martin's family. >> was your purpose at that point to do what you could do, to assist so that george zimmerman got arrested? >> yes. >> reporter: over the past hour, defense working to systemically to break rachel jeantel down. defense eluding that she can't possibly understand the facts of this case. >> okay, matt, thank you.
7:11 am
we're going to bring in abc news chief legal affairs anchor, dan abrams. when you hear the testimony, i know you heard much of this key witness, what do you take away the most? >> she's a very important witness. but the most important thing that she said is that she says trayvon martin says get off, get off. why is that so important? because that would suggest that george zimmerman starts this incident. that's something george zimmerman says is not true. george zimmerman would say, trayvon martin effectively confronts him. so, if you believe her testimony, that becomes very important point, "a" in figuring out what happened, and, "b," in judging george zimmerman's credibility. >> and she will be back on the stand today. she doesn't seem too pleased about that. she has admitted she lied in the deposition. how did the defense do in cross examination? >> it was effective. they were able to show she told a couple of lies. they weren't directly related to the most important point here. but there were inconsistencies
7:12 am
which were significant. there were outright lies, which were significant. and jurors, if they don't believe some of what a witness says, are allowed to disregard everything a witness says. so, we'll just have to see how she holds up, as this cross-examination continues. she seemed shocked -- >> because the defense attorney really needs to discredit her testimony because it's that important. >> also, jurors heard some of the nonemergency calls, some of the calls that zimmerman made to the police station. and how important is that? >> they're trying to show, this is a guy who calls the police whenever he sees a black person in his neighborhood. now, the defense would say, that's not at all what's happening here. but that's the point. >> all right, dan. we'll see what happens today. let's turn now to josh for the other top stories happening now. good morning, robin. we're going to begin with a narrow escape for two pilots as the f-16 fighter jet they were flying crashed, nose-first, into this field near phoenix.
7:13 am
you see here, you see the giant plume of smoke, as well. they were on a training mission, when there was some sort of malfunction. the two ejected in time. thankfully, you can see actually where one of their seats landed. witnesses heard the engines sputtering just before the crash. we'll have an update as news becomes available. this, though, no emergency. but quite a scare for people on a delta flight, what looked like smoke filling up the cabin. it was in fact fog, caused by the hot and humid air mixing with the a.c. turbulence caused even more worries. the pilot reportedly distributed liquor to those of age to calm some nerves. new details in the diplomatic standoff over american spy whistleblower edward snowden. ecuador says that it could take two months to decide to grant him asylum if he can get there. because, right now, snowden is spending his fourth day at the moscow airport. you'll recall this ordeal began in hong kong.
7:14 am
officials there now claim the u.s. got snowden's middle name wrong on documents. and that prevented them from arresting him. u.s. officials deny making that mistake. and a fitting tribute to the late actor james gandolfini. broadway dimmed the lights in his honor last night. "the sopranos" star died of a heart attack last week at the age of 51. many of his fellow actors will be attending his funeral today here in new york city. and finally, a sprint of freedom for a runner who decided to shed some extra pounds. take a look. they were off at belmont park here in new york. that right there, downtown hottie, left her jockey in the dust. instantly became, of course, the crowd favorite. they cheered her to victory. unfortunately, that victory, disqualified for actually not having a rider. the other horses turned to her and said, oldest trick in the book. we've seen it every time. points for trying.
7:15 am
>> thanks, josh. okay, we're going to get the latest on paula deen. more fallout after her admission that she used racial slurs in the past. her apologies have not stopped sponsors from dropping her. the latest, walmart and caesar's casinos. >> reporter: for walmart, the country's largest retailer that sells her baking dishes and knife set, thinks her apology is not enough. we are ending our relationship with paula deen, it announced. and will not be placing any new orders. >> if there is anyone out there that has never said something that they wished they would take back, if you're out there, please pick up that stone and throw it so hard at my head that it kills me. >> reporter: caesar's casino tore up its deal, too. no more paula deen buffet. while we appreciate her sincere
7:16 am
apologies, the company wrote, it's in the best interests of both parties to part ways. >> i'm so happy to show y'all my stoneware. >> reporter: kmart and sears sell her stoneware. they tell us, quote, that they're considering next steps. her $16 million empire could keep losing castles. so, she's hired judy smith, a public relations crisis manager, whose success is the inspiration behind the abc hit show "scandal." on walmart facebook page, posting, you drop paula. and i drop walmart. the annual paula deen cruise has added a second departure. and advance sales of her latest cookbook are through the roof. so, about those words. the words that she used in the deposition in the lawsuit against her. paula deen says those aren't her. george? >> okay, we'll see what happens next. thanks, steve. we're turning, now, to wimbledon. the opening days, full of drama
7:17 am

7:18 am
>> it was a bit slippery on the outside. >> reporter: and nadal dropped his first-round match in straight sets to an unknown, ranked 135th. >> nadal had it. >> reporter: and four days in, ten players have dropped out because of injury. though the all england club says, and i quote, the court preparation has been to exactly the same meticulous standard as in previous years. don't tell that to roger federer, wimbledon's defending champion, he crashed and burned wednesday, losing to the 116th-ranked sergiy stakhovsky. but in a move from federer, he didn't blame court conditions or that mandate that does not allow him to wear his trademark shoes. instead, he blamed himself. >> clearly, i was hoping to win the match today. but i couldn't do it. >> and, of course, you can watch all the action at wimbledon, on our sister network, espn. robin, i know you're heading over there. you might want to bring your racket because you might be
7:19 am
playing for a title. >> i am looking forward to it. sam, you're going to guarantee good weather there? >> yeah. didn't they build a protective cover over that for that reason? we're going to start with a very clear separation for one part of the country is enjoying summer and what part is wetter than normal. we're going to start with video out of philadelphia. this is part of the wet going on in the eastern part of the nation. yeah, take a look at this. another day of heavy rain and the powerful afternoon thunderstorms. violent thunderstorms will erupt in the eastern half of the country again today. indianapolis, chicago, new york, washington, d.c., atlanta, little rock, oklahoma city, all involved in this. and then, look at the western half of the country that is just searing in this heat. oklahoma city, 102 today. and dallas at 101 today. that's the first 100-degree reading.

7:32 am
semipro football player, odin lloyd. >> numerous gunshot wounds to the body. >> reporter: in court, prosecutors outlined an alleged murder plot, that started from an argument between the two men the previous friday night. prosecutors say the plan went into motion the following sunday night. authorities found text messages, allegedly from hernandez and lloyd. last monday, shortly after 2:00 a.m., prosecutors say hernandez and two friends bought gas and bubblicious gum at a gas station. at 2:30 a.m., prosecutors say lloyd gets into the car with them. at 3:07, did you see who i am with. 12 minutes later, his sister responds by asking, who? shortly afterwards, lloyd texts "nfl." which prosecutors say means hernandez. moments later, gunshots are heard by witnesses,
7:33 am
according to prosecutors. hernandez's surveillance cameras capture him arriving home. he's allegedly seen carrying a gun inside his house. prosecutors claim hernandez got rid of the next six to eight hours of video. later that day, hernandez returns a rental car. prosecutors say he offered the attendant a piece of blue bubblicious gum. >> the aten dantd does a cleanup of the car and finds a shell casing under the seat. next to the casing is a piece of blue gum. >> reporter: the former patriots tight end has pled not guilty. his lawyer insists his client is innocent. and this morning, we're getting a look at this photo obtained by tmz, hernandez took of himself in 2009 in florida, holding a glock handgun. >> he's never been found guilty of a violent crime. >> reporter: hernandez seen here in this interview after the super bowl. >> what did you do after the super bowl? >> reporter: it was an emotional scene in court yesterday, as the alleged details of the crime
7:34 am
were read out loud. the victim's mother actually walked out, just too much for her to handle. as for hernandez, he is due back in court, july 24th. >> john, thanks. abc's chief legal anchor dan abrams, back with us again. you heard his lawyer. it's circumstantial case, not a strong one. >> it's a classic circumstantial case. and it may be a strong one. you're talking about surveillance tapes, you're talking about cell phone text messages, physical evidence, shell casings, a piece of bubble gum near a shell casing. you have the destroyed surveillance tapes. you've got a cell phone that's handed over in pieces. so, it's true this is a circumstantial case. but prosecutors seem to be able to piece together everything. they've gone minute-by-minute, to piece together almost everything they believe happened. >> what they're not saying is that hernandez pulled the trigger. but that doesn't matter in a murder charge.
7:35 am
>> they used the phrase, orchestrated the execution. they are saying he pulled the trigger. they see him with the gun. they see him with the gun walking in, afterwards, et cetera. but they wouldn't need that to convict him of murder. >> what they don't seem to have is a very powerful motive. >> the motive is odd here. i mean, the idea that something happens at a nightclub many days earlier. and then, hernandez decides to call in this guy, who, he's apparently dating his girlfriend's sister, but that didn't seem to have been the issue. so, we're going to need -- you don't need to prove motive. but in a case like this, jurors are going to want to know why. why would he have done this? why would he call a guy into a car, have a conversation with him and then execute him at 3:00 in the morning? so, i do think that motive, while not necessary, is going to be important for the prosecutors to establish. >> dan, thanks very much. i'm not sure you're going to
7:36 am
want to weigh in on this one. this is the ultimate nasty neighbor story. a criminal trial under way in miami right now for the man who has an entire neighborhood feuding with him. residents say he made their lives miserable for years until he was caught on tape. abc's john muller has that story for us. >> reporter: they call him the neighbor from hell. and residents of the florida community, say their surveillance video is proof he's been terrorizing them for years. >> nobody goes out like we used to do before. >> reporter: he said that he installed a security system, equipped with ten surveillance cameras, after he claims his neighbor started harassing him. allegedly throwing nails on his driveway and eggs at his home. >> he already told me that he was going to kill me. he mentioned before that he has a contract on my head. and this is what they want to say because eventually something is going to happen to me.

john muller, abc news, new york. >> cameras are always ruling. let's get another check on the weather now with sam. when you look at that map from, sam. >> it's what we're trying to talk about in the first half. half of the country is searing, dry heat. and half the country can't stop raining. and that's been the pattern that we have been in so far this summer. let's deal with the wet half. there's more rain coming in this direction today. and for the foreseeable future. chicago, you're really wettest year to date. you're on your way for the wettest june ever in new york. these are just june rainfalls and they are all several inches above normal. it's not all-day rain, but once these afternoon thunderstorms fire up, they're capable of producing heavy downpours. and parts of the country just don't need the additional rain. and there's more heat in the paces that don't want more heat. it just stays exactly in the same pattern we've had so far. the northwest that had been out of this, now gets into the big heat, as well.
