ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say the wife of Trayvon Martin’s shooter is being accused of lying to a judge about their finances during his bond hearing and faces one count of perjury.
An order issued Tuesday by assistant state attorney John Guy charged Shellie Zimmerman for knowingly making false statements during the April hearing. George Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in the shooting.
He was granted $150,000 bond at that hearing and released.
The judge revoked that bond earlier this month after state attorneys argued that both Zimmerman and his wife had lied to the judge about their finances, especially about money raised from a website.
George Zimmerman is back in jail.
Ten News: Orlando, Florida — The wife of George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watchman who shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, has been arrested.
Shellie Zimmerman was arrested on charges of perjury, due to testimony she earlier gave saying the couple had limited funds for bail, because she was a full-time student and her husband wasn’t working. Prosecutors say Zimmerman actually raised $135,000 in donations from a website he created.
Shellie turned herself in Tuesday afternoon.
