Testimony in the two-day "stand your ground" hearing is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m.

Prosecutors and attorneys for Raja clashed most of the Monday during a hearing over whether his fatal shooting of 31-year-old Corey Jones was justified.

Jones' family and attorney Benjamin Crump are expected to make a statement before Tuesday's hearing.

Raja could face trial for manslaughter and attempted murder charges for killing Jones, who pulled a gun when they came face-to-face on a dark Interstate 95 off ramp along PGA Boulevard before dawn in October 2015.
