On Friday, prosecutors in the George Zimmerman trial called Trayvon Martin’s older brother, Jahvaris Fulton, to testify that it was Trayvon’s voice on the 911 call. But defense pointed out that Fulton had told a reporter shortly after the shooting that he wasn’t sure it was Trayvon’s voice on the tape.
On the stand, Jahvaris suggested that he was “hoping” it wasn’t his brother’s voice on the tape originally. When the defense requested that the taped interview with the reporter be played, the judge denied the request.
