Trayvon Martin

Judge in George Zimmerman Trial Will Allow Previous Phone Calls to Police as Evidence

Prosecutors trying to depict Zimmerman as unhinged


A Florida judge ruled Wednesday that audio recordings of non-emergency calls George Zimmerman made to police in the months before he shot Florida teen Trayvon Martin could be admitted as evidence in the neighborhood watch volunteer's second-degree murder trial.

Zimmerman, 29, called the police close to 50 times over an eight-year period to report such things as slow vehicles, loitering strangers in the neighborhood and open garages.
