As testimony continues in the George Zimmerman murder trial, the defense comes closer to closing their case – and the jury comes closer to reaching a verdict.

Yesterday the court saw 10 witnesses, one who took the stand twice, who testified about their knowledge of Zimmerman’s past and also identified the screams heard on witness Jennifer Lauer’s 911 call.

In all, five witnesses, all friends of Zimmerman’s, identified the voice heard on the tape as his. Only Trayvon Martin’s father, Tracy Martin, identified the screams as his son’s.

While on stand, Martin also denied that he initially said the screams on the audio weren’t Trayvon’s. Lead investigator in the shooting, Chris Serino, testified before Martin that upon hearing the 911 tape the first time, the father said “no” under his breath when asked if he heard Trayvon’s voice.
