Judge Weighs Whether To Allow Voice Experts In Zimmerman Trial
This trial has the potential to turn into quite a circus.
Check it out:
George Zimmerman returned to court Saturday morning for the third day in a hearing that will determine whether voice-recognition experts should be allowed at his murder case.
Florida Circuit judge Debra Nelson has been listening to testimony on the issue since Thursday, and the defense still has several more witnesses to call.
The hearing is being held 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.
A British audio expert testified for the defense Saturday that it would be extremely difficult to analyze voices by comparing screaming to a normal voice.
