Zimmerman’s wife had $63,000 before bond hearing
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Records released by prosecutors show the wife of a former neighborhood watch leader who killed Trayvon Martin had almost $63,000 in her bank account the day before she testified at her husband’s bond hearing that her family had limited funds to pay his bail.
The bank records released Tuesday shows that George Zimmerman’s wife, Shellie, had made a series of transfers from her husband’s account in the days before his April bond hearing.
The money had been raised from a website set up for Zimmerman’s legal defense.
Zimmerman was released on $150,000 bond. It was revoked and he went back to jail after prosecutors alleged Shellie Zimmerman misled the court about their finances.
Zimmerman is pleading not guilty to second-degree murder, claiming self-defense.
He has a second bond hearing next week.
