Florida's special prosecutor assigned to the second-degree murder case against George Zimmerman, who shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in February, has released audio from Zimmerman's calls with his wife Shellie. The prosecutor also released bank records, which allegedly prove that Shellie — who was arrested last week for allegedly lying about the couple's finances — was dishonest when she told a judge that the couple was broke. In the phone calls, which George made from jail, he is heard giving his wife "step-by-step instructions on how to change a password and clear security questions, so that she could move money from one account to others." The couple uses code language to describe at least one bank account. The 34 pages of bank records also detail large transfers of up $10,000 each that Shellie allegedly made before being jailed.
