Two police officers described today how Tracy Martin, the slain teenager’s father, listened to the tapes of the 911 calls two days after his son was killed. The screams for help could be heard in the background.

The father said , however, that he did not deny it was his son’s voice.

“[I] shook my head and said I can’t tell,” Tracy Martin told the Florida court. “I never said that no, it was not my son’s voice.”

Under cross examination by the prosecution, Tracy Martin said listening to the tape was an awful moment for him and that his “world turned upside down that day.” The six women jurors watched the father intently during his testimony.
