SANFORD, Fla. -

More evidence was released on Tuesday in the case against George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watchman who shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

The state attorney's office said new records, including video and audio recordings of Zimmerman were released, but they appear to be the same ones released last week.

The evidence also includes written statements from Zimmerman and police, including a police report previously released by Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara, but not redacted in some areas as before. The report contains the results of Zimmerman's voice stress test, along with Zimmerman's account of the events and written statements.

In the evidence released Tuesday, an arrest warrant request for Zimmerman on manslaughter charges, dated March 13 by lead investigator Christopher Serino, says Zimmerman's actions were,  "inconsistent with those of a person who has states he was in fear of another subject."

Serino went on to say Zimmerman had two opportunities to speak with Martin but "didn't fail to identify himself as a concerned resident or neighborhood watch member."

The voice test analysis reveals the examiner didn't detect signs of deception, even when Zimmerman was asked if he confronted Martin to which he replied no. Zimmerman was also truthful when he said he was in fear of his life when he shot Martin, according to the report.

In the audio recordings, there appears to be more information redacted than the ones released last week by O'Mara on his website, GZLegalCase.com

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Martin, who was shot and killed Feb. 26 in Sanford. Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty, claiming self-defense.
