A former neighbor of George Zimmerman testified that she heard the cries of a boy prior to the gunshot that killed 17 year-old Trayvon Martin.

Jane Surdyka also said she could hear an aggressive voice and a softer voice going back and forth with one another.

However, her credibility is in question; she also claimed she heard three gunshots, when only one was fired.

From the Grio:

Other neighbors also have described hearing cries for help which were captured on their calls to 911. Martin’s parents have said they were those of their son, while Zimmerman’s father has said he believes the cries belong to his son. Both prosecutors and defense attorneys believe they could show whether Zimmerman or Martin was the aggressor in the encounter at the Retreat at Twin Lakes townhome complex on Feb. 26, 2012. Defense attorneys successfully argued against allowing prosecution experts who claimed the cries belonged to Martin.

The George Zimmerman defense team hopes to prove that Martin was the aggressor in the fatal altercation.

Zimmerman faces life in prison if he’s convicted of second degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin.
