The neighbor who called 911 during the night Trayvon Martin was shot and killed testified today that she heard a boy’s cry for help shortly before hearing the firing of a gun.
Jayne Surdyka told the judge and jury “I truly believe the second yell for help was a yelp,” … “It was excruciating. I really felt it was a boy’s voice.”
The voice can be heard during her call to the dispatcher and the defense is trying to argue that the cry belongs to George Zimmerman.
However, Surdyka also testified on the third day that she heard multiple gunshots, “pop, pop, pop.” But only one shot was fired in the fatal encounter between Zimmerman and Trayvon.
Also Wednesday, Judge Debra Nelson ruled that she would allow at trial five police dispatch calls Zimmerman made in the months prior to his encounter with Martin.
Prosecutors want to use the calls to bolster their argument that Zimmerman was increasingly frustrated with repeated burglaries and had reached a breaking point the night he shot the Treyvon. Zimmerman called police 46 times in recent years to report happenings.
