UNDATED (CBS) -- Prosecutors released recordings today of jailhouse phone calls between George Zimmerman and his wife. Prosecutors say the calls show the former neighborhood watch captain who killed Trayvon Martin knew how much money the couple raised and were trying to move the money around. Zimmerman is in jail in Florida awaiting trial.
Prosecutors say jailhouse phone calls between George Zimmerman and his wife show the couple talking about the money, more than $100,000, raised for his defense. They used code to describe the amounts.
Part of the conversation goes like this:
ZIMMERMAN: In my account, do I have at least $100? How, how, how close am I?
SHELLIE: There's like $8
ZIMMERMAN: Oh, okay, so total, everything, how much are we looking at?
SHELLIE: Um, like $155
ZIMMERMAN: Okay, good.
The calls also detail how Zimmerman instructed his wife to transfer money between bank accounts. The former neighborhood watch volunteer is facing murder charges for killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman claims the shooting of the unarmed teenager was self-defense.
Zimmerman was released on $150,000 bond in April, several days after the calls took place. At his bond hearing, his wife, Shellie, testified the couple was broke. She is now facing perjury charges and Zimmerman's bail was revoked.
Zimmerman can also be heard in the phone calls asking his wife to buy bulletproof vests for both of them and for his attorney.
The phone calls could play a crucial role in Zimmerman's second bond hearing next week.
In another call, Shellie Zimmerman said that money raised from the legal defense website was also being used to pay off the couple's bills.
