Among their requests, they want jurors to see the car Philando Castile was driving when he was shot, and they want Yanez to recreate the scene for jurors and explain his actions.

They also want to use Castile's arrest and driving record as evidence.

The defense also wants to use content from Diamond Reynolds' Facebook page. She was Castile's girlfriend who was in the car and live-streamed the aftermath of the shooting on Facebook.
