AFRICANGLOBE – Former neighborhood watch vigilante and accused murderer George Zimmerman is questioning the expected use of a voice recognition expert at his murder trial next month.
Zimmerman’s attorney filed a motion made public Monday asking for a hearing to determine whether testimony from the expert would be allowed.
Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder for following and then fatally shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin last year in a gated community in Sanford, Florida during an alleged struggle. George Zimmerman is pleading not guilty.
Neighbors called 911 during the struggle and cries of help can be heard on the calls. Trayvon Martin’s family claims the voice is that of the South Florida teen.
George Zimmerman’s father has said in court he believes the cries are from his son.
George Zimmerman’s attorney says jurors could be confused by a voice expert’s testimony.
