SANFORD, Fla. (AP) - The judge in the George Zimmerman case will hear another case involving Florida's "stand your ground" law.

The Orlando Sentinel reports Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. on Wednesday will hear the case of 43-year-old Anita Smithey who claims she shot her husband while he was raping her in their Oviedo home on May 4, 2010.

Authorities say Smithey had been separated from 41-year-old Robert Cline III for three months.

According to police reports, Smithey claims Cline placed what she believed was a knife at her throat after accusing her of sleeping with someone else. She says she pulled a .38-caliber and pointed it at his midsection. When he leaned forward, the gun fired. Then she fired again.

Zimmerman also claims self-defense in the February shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
