BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The case against George Zimmerman in Florida is affecting a Baltimore trial involving a neighborhood watch group.

The trial of Eliyahu and Avi Werdesheim has been delayed.

The brothers are accused of beating an African-American teen while patrolling a Jewish neighborhood in November 2010.

They face multiple charges, including assault.

The brothers have claimed self-defense.

Defense attorneys say they want to postpone the case until the uproar over Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman has eased.  They also plan to ask for a change of venue.

A judge will hear the motions Tuesday.

If convicted, the pair faces up to 13 years in prison.
