One audio expert said in a report released Tuesday that the screams came from Martin, the 17-year-old boy fatally shot in February 2012, while another audio expert said the shouts were a mix of Martin and Zimmerman.

Attorneys prosecuting Zimmerman for second-degree murder hired the audio experts to compare samples of Martin and Zimmerman's voices with the shouts from the 911 calls.

Martin's family claims the voice is that of the South Florida teen. Zimmerman's father has said in court he thinks the cries are from his son.

Zimmerman is pleading not guilty, claiming self-defense, in the shooting of Martin at a Sanford gated community. His trial starts next month.
