The wife of a man who describes himself as George Zimmerman’s best friend testified Monday morning that she believes George Zimmerman was screaming in the background of a crucial 911 call.

“Yes, definitely. It’s Georgie,” said Sondra Osterman, the wife of Zimmerman’s friend Mark Osterman, who also took the stand Monday as the defense continued their case.

The 911 call, placed by a neighbor the evening of the fatal confrontation between Zimmerman and slain Florida teen Trayvon Martin, was played several times in court Monday morning. The tape is a crucial piece of evidence because it could provide clues as to who was the aggressor in the fatal Feb. 26, 2012 confrontation. Both Zimmerman’s mother and Martin’s mother testified in court last week that they believe the voice belongs to their son.

Zimmerman, a former neighborhood watch captain charged with second degree murder, claims he shot the teen in self-defense.
