ORLANDO, Florida - Jailhouse calls show how the former neighborhood watch leader charged with killing Trayvon Martin instructed his wife to transfer money from bank accounts.

The calls released by prosecutors Monday could play a crucial role in George Zimmerman's second bond hearing next week.

Zimmerman was released on $150,000 bond in April, several days after the calls took place. At his bond hearing, his wife, Shellie, testified that she didn't know how much money had been raised from a website created for his legal defense.

Prosecutors say the calls show George and Shellie Zimmerman knew that roughly $135,000 had been raised by the site.

Shellie Zimmerman was arrested last week on a charge of making a false statement.

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder. He is pleading not guilty, claiming self-defense.
