Calls: Zimmerman told wife to buy bulletproof vest

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Jailhouse calls show that the former neighborhood watch volunteer who killed Trayvon Martin told his wife to buy bulletproof vests for them and for his attorney.

George Zimmerman was wearing a bulletproof vest when he left the jail after posting bond.

The calls, released Monday by prosecutors, also detail how Zimmerman instructed his wife to transfer money from bank accounts. They could play a crucial role in 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. She also testified that they had limited funds because she was in school full time and Zimmerman wasn’t working.
