Judge Weighs Voice Experts in Zimmerman Trial

Associated Press Release

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) -- A Florida judge is listening to a third day of testimony that will help her decide if voice-recognition experts should be allowed at George Zimmerman's trial.

Testimony was continuing Saturday, only two days before jury selection starts in Zimmerman's second-degree murder trial for fatally shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in February 2012.

Zimmerman is pleading not guilty, claiming self-defense.

Voice experts were hired by lawyers and news organizations to
analyze 911 calls made during the confrontation in which screams can be heard.

The screams are crucial pieces of evidence since they could determine who the aggressor was in the confrontation. Martin's family contends it was the teen screaming, while Zimmerman's father has said it was his son.

Audio experts have reached mixed conclusions.
