SANFORD, Fla. (AP) - A prosecutor has gotten a judge to strike from the record an opinion from a Sanford police detective who testified that he found George Zimmerman credible in his account of how he got into a fight with Trayvon Martin.

Judge Debra Nelson on Tuesday told jurors to disregard the statement Detective Chris Serino made Monday.

Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda said Serino's statement was improper because one witness isn't allowed to give an opinion on the credibility of another witness.

Defense attorney Mark O'Mara says the opinion is proper because Serino was vetting Zimmerman's veracity during his probe.

Zimmerman is pleading not guilty to second-degree murder, claiming self-defense.
